February 15, 1943 Mansfield PA professor of linguistics Committed Relationship 1 Inlet Valley (1-5) St. John's (6) Boynton Boynton After graduating from Wooster, I was in the Peace Corps, first in India and then in Afghanistan (before anyone had heard of this beautiful and remote country). Married an Afghan, spent a year in Japan, then returned to the USA. Gave birth, taught in a variety of places and a variety of subjects, following husband around. PhD in linguistics from Michigan State University. Taught in China for a year and then moved to Morocco where I taught at Al Akhawayn University for three years and conducted field research on the oral performance narrative of Berber women. Divorced. Moved back to USA in 1999 for a (finally) tenured position at Mansfield University of Pennsylvania. Spent a year as a Senior Fulbright Lecturer at Sofia University, Bulgaria. Gained a Brazilian daughter-in-law and then a grandson. Life in the remote wilds of northern PA is great--and just a short distance from Ithaca, where I go every few weeks to shop at Greenstar, do research at Olin, and get my gimme! coffee fix.
Kudos to Loulie and the whole reunion committee for such a great site.

November 23, 1943 Pittsburgh PA economist Married Fall Creek Boynton Boynton Where is he now? How did that happen? Let me begin with graduation from Ithaca High School. I hoped to skip the ceremony, but was advised that the administration might refuse to hand over my diploma unless I showed up wearing the official regalia (what I always thought of as a “monkey suit”). I knew they could not withhold the diploma for long, but feared delay – and I needed the diploma immediately to enter a calculus class at Cornell that began immediately following our graduation. So I dutifully donned the monkey suit, mounted the stage when my name was called, tripped over the hem of my costume, and slid across the stage on my belly – like a penguin sliding across the ice.
This experience hardened my resolve to avoid graduation ceremonies and monkey suits. I can now report that I have attended a total of ZERO graduation ceremonies since 1961, including ceremonies linked to my receipt of three university-level degrees (my mother asked to attend my Cornell graduation, fearing that her co-workers might tag her as a “bad parent” if she did not show up; I offered to supply tickets for her to attend in my absence; she risked the opprobrium of her workmates and stayed away), as well as annual festivities at universities where I have taught for the past 40 years. I must confess to have donned a monkey suit on one (private) occasion – when my father handed over his own costume from the University of Vienna. I accepted his outfit in the hope that I could lend it to my wife and avoid having her buy her own separate costume – no such luck. So we are now proud owners of not one, but two sets of graduation regalia.
But on with the history. Starting with calculus, I entered Cornell determined to study physics (no doubt propelled by Sputnik envy). This ambition was soon derailed – I spent more time using my math knowledge to try and disprove the physics lessons than learning physics. Result – a quick transfer to the math department. That went well until I encountered Professor Jacob Wolfowitz (Paul’s father). He was an amazing teacher. His class was hilarious. Somehow he mixed enormous amounts of material in with all the jokes. I found myself spending 40 hours each week outside of class trying to keep up. At the end, I know that my grade on the final exam would be zero or 100, but had no idea which outcome was more probable. Although the grade turned out to be 100, I decided to forsake math – what if I landed in four courses, each as demanding as Prof. Wolfowitz??
So I bravely marched across the quadrangle and signed up for Economics (which I had begun to study at Cornell while finishing high school). The dismal scientists welcomed me. I flashed my math credentials at the door (much appreciated by the residents), but neglected to inform them that my plans did not involve much in the way of mathematical economics. I actually decided to link up the economics with Chinese, another long-standing interest. Thanks to the generosity of Governor Rockefeller and his Regents Scholarship, I was able to pay for a Chinese-language program at Columbia in the summer of 1964.
After graduating from Cornell, I moved to Harvard’s graduate programs in economics with visions of Chinese this and Chinese that. This approach lasted about 24 hours until my adviser, Dwight Perkins, himself a Cornell graduate, informed me that I would spend two years studying various sub-fields of economics, after which I could “do whatever you damn please for the rest of your life.” This sounded like a good deal, so I followed Dwight’s suggestion. This approach worked. I became a Dismal Scientist, learned some more Chinese (managed to get myself sent to Stanford for this purpose – my first sight of the West coast), began studying Japanese, married Evelyn Sakakida, a Cornell graduate (whom I never met in Ithaca) who came to me seeking statistical advice (that did not work – I recommended trashing the statistics – but other topics worked out better), spent two years in Japan and Hong Kong, completed my studies, and landed a teaching position at the University of Toronto.
I spent 14 happy years in Toronto – a good place both professionally and personally. The only problem was that Evelyn wanted to continue her own academic career at the University of Pittsburgh – which had hired her before we married (she finished her studies ahead of me). Evelyn and her department invented commuting – she flew back and forth to Pittsburgh for most of the 14 years, buying 15 tickets at a time (our travel agent would receive calls from Eastern Airlines: “where is the lady who buys 15 tickets every year in August and January?” Eventually, Pittsburgh made their big mistake by inviting me to join their economics faculty, which I agreed to do. When Margaret Thatcher agreed to return Hong Kong to China, the slogan was “One country, two systems.” That was the objective for Evelyn and me, and in 1985 we managed to achieve it – going one better than Thatcher and Deng by attaining two systems in the same building, with History on the 3rd floor and Economics on the 4th. And as an extra bonus, no further dealings with Canada’s immigration authorities and no more Canadian tax returns!
Twenty-five years have passed rapidly since our move to Pittsburgh. Since China figures prominently in both our work, we have made many trips to Asia – initially mainly to Japan (Americans were not welcome in China before the early 1980s), then increasingly to China (most recently for me in May 2010). You may have seen us on TV around the time of the June 4, 1989 protests and massacre in Beijing (yes – those big feet sticking out from under the bed were probably mine). I have logged a good deal of time, many miles, and learned a great deal while running around China.
Chinese language is an endless struggle. I manage some public speaking in Chinese (can’t imagine what kind of headache remedies the audience requires when I am finished). Fortunately, Chinese is a language with huge regional variation, so the natives are accustomed to absorbing an amazing variety of ghastly non-standard speech. This is my good fortune – my linguistic efforts simply come across as yet another species of horrible Mandarin. My reading is OK – as long as I stick to economic stuff. Fortunately the Chinese have absorbed a good deal of international economics lingo (what I call “World Bank Chinese”) which makes it pretty easy to figure out what’s on tap even if the exact wording is not familiar. My big shortcoming is on the comprehension side. If people speak too fast, too slangy, too or present too much regional accent, my comprehension drops swiftly. Fifteen years ago I lost hearing in one ear thanks to a (fortunately benign) tumor. Now there’s a new problem – first I have to hear what they are saying, then try to catch the meaning.
So there it is: still keeping my nose to the University track, although retirement beckons. No children, no regrets (what if they had turned out like me – yikes). I am a horrible correspondent and have not kept up with classmates – except for occasional encounters with Beth (Bronfenbrenner) Soll, Linda Russo, and Paul Wolfowitz and occasional email trysts with David Browne, Ron Cima, Dixie Dahmen, John David, Loulie Hoffman, George Kent, and Jerry Morgan. I am in occasional touch with members of other classes: Fred Baumann, John Roemer (a fellow dismal scientist, now at Yale) and Marty Whyte (who ran the store at Camp Barton when I was a camper and later became a China-oriented sociologist). Had to give up squash and tennis around 1985 (back problems). Stopped playing hockey when I moved to Pittsburgh (briefly in 1970 – pro hockey kills amateur sport – my last hockey encounter was with a stick in my eye). Actually never put on skates since leaving Toronto in 1985 – looked like a complete fool when I tried to skate this past winter (fortunately no ex-teammate could see the awful spectacle) – suffice it to say that my one and only effort to “step on the gas” landed me flat on my face in 0.5 seconds. Must try again next winter. In the meantime, I stick to more sedate sports – walking, swimming, gardening, and discussing Chinese economic affairs with anyone foolish enough to inquire.
