In 1958, I came to Chicago where I have remained.
I started working and publishing in price theory by 1938.
It was in the 1960s that I began the detailed study of public regulation.
My teaching began in 1936 at Iowa State College where T. W. Schultz was the department chairman.
I met my wife, Margaret L. Mack, at the University of Chicago. We were married in 1936. She died in 1970.
My main graduate training was received at the University of Chicago from which I received the Ph.D. in 1938.
I attended schools in Seattle through the University of Washington, from which I was graduated in 1931. I spent the next year at Northwestern University.
My interests were aroused, and my faith in the cliches of the subject destroyed, as so often with other subjects, by the discussions with my friend, Aaron Director.
After the war, I returned to Minnesota, from which I soon moved to Brown University, and a year later, to Columbia University where I remained from 1947 until 1958.
Even before I came to Chicago, I had gotten interested in the existence of dispersion of prices under conditions which economic theory said would yield a single price.
