and he took over the temporary position of Rare Book Librarian at the University of Florida. Jay bought a home surrounded by camelias and azaleas.
After graduatin the following summer, we headed for Arizona where Jay took a permanent position as Assistant Director of the Arizona
State University Library and I entered a doctorate program in Educational Technology. We lived in a beautiful new home near the University in Tempe with
our dachshund J. Edgar von Bumble.
After earning my Ph.D. in 1972 I was recruited by the University of British Columba as an Assistant Professor of Education
in the Department of Educational Media and Communications. I lived in a penthouse in the English Bay area close to the glorious
beaches and Stanley Park.
Then in 1973 I met Jim Lloyd and by May of 1974 I moved to Philadelphia and a new position as
head of the Media Learning Center in the College of Arts and Sciences at Temple University. By the time that I
retired in 1998, the audio language lab included full media and computer lab space for faculty and students.
