In "Musings of a Depression-Era Southern Farm Boy," John W. Fuquay shares his reflections on his life and offers his views on several issues confronting our nation today. In it, the author describes growing up as a Quaker in rural North Carolina during the Great Depression and World War II, and how he felt coming home after graduate school. The author then offers reflections "on various sundry topics" from his life experience both on the farm and as a university professor. Finally, the author explores universal themes that he finds relevant as both a churchgoer and as a scientist.show more
