Biography:  Grew up in Littleton, New Hampshire. Two years at Michigan State University in pre-vet. Two years at Univ. of NH in Medical Technology. One year residency at Mary Hitchcock Mem'l Hosp in Hanover NH, now Dartmouth-Hitchcock Med Ctr. Supervisor of evening and night shifts in lab at DHMC until 1974. Took 16 years off to raise three wonderful children. Now have worked for 20 years at Mt. Ascutney Hospital in Windsor, VT. While researching Admiral Byrd and Paul Siple for a project, I found a distant cousin, John Tuck, Jr. This really sparked my interest in Antarctic and all the explorers! My goal is to write a book about Bravo, Jack Tuck's dog. It would be from Bravo's point of view but really about all that was accomplished during that first winter-over at the pole.
