Today's Featured Biography
John Gainer Jr.
After graduating from SIUE in 1968 with degrees in Speech Education and History I began a long career in Catholic education which included St. Thomas Aquinas H.S. in Florissant, MO., Nerinx Hall H.S. in Webster Groves, MO., and twenty two years at Ursuline Academy H.S. in Dallas, TX.
I retired from Ursuline Academy in 2007 and my wife Dixie, a former IBM executive for 31 years, retired in 2002.
While teaching history at Ursuline I became deeply interested in the Civil War. Or as we refer to it here in Virginia, the "War of Northern Aggression". Dixie and I would spend summers visiting battlefields and doing research. Well, I did research and Dixie hit the antique stores. We fell in love with Virginia, particularly the Shenandoah Valley. So in 2007 we said goodbye to Dallas and moved to the historic town of Staunton in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley.
I am an avid runner, my goal for 2013 is to run a 10K under 50. Dixie is active in civic affairs serving on the board of directors for the Staunton library and the Staunton Historic Foundation as well as being the archivist for the Historic Foundation. I am active in the Shenandoah Valley Battlefield Preservation Foundation.
I still have family in the Alton area and was back in December for my dad's funeral. He was 98 years old. Hope to get back again in October.
Life is good. We have been blessed.
