Author Info

Tim Haywood began life as a war baby in 1944 in England from a English woman and a young Georgia farm boy who had just finished 25 missions as a tail gunner in a B17. He arrived in the US three months later to join his paternal grandparents on their middle Georgia farm. There was no running water and the electricity simply lighted the rooms and powered the stove, the refrigerator, and an AM radio that was used only to listen to the Grand Old Opry on Saturday night. At least it was that way at the beginning of this remembering, twelve years later. He joined the army at 18 to learn a trade that would allow him to  settle down and raise a family later, like everyone else. A year later he  found himself,  almost literally, at Camp David , assigned to the Secret Service. It was the first time he met someone with a college degree who wasn't a teacher. He spent his free time hiking and fishing the Cotoctin mountains around the Camp and reading something other than The Bible and Sunday school lessons. He decided to go to college and become a physicist, much to the amusement of his college educated colleagues. In 1965  he caught a Greyhound bus from Washington D.C. to Athens, Georgia where he began his studies in physics and immersed himself in the wonders of college learning. Nine years  later he was awarded a Ph.D. in physics from UNC Chapel Hill. After three years of post doctoral studies at Cornell he settled down to teaching and research at UNCW in North Carolina. A couple of decades later he resigned his tenured, full professor position to head to Colorado to find something new. He is now retired back on the coast of North Carolina.
