Do you have a relative or friend that worked on Panama Canal?
If you have stories, written or remembered, of what working and social conditions were like in the prime building years 1904-1914, I’d love to hear from you.
I’m particularly interested in atmosphere and social acceptance between American workers and native Panamanians.
I am working on a historical fiction piece. I have researched technical data, but missing the personal touch.
I have to tell you right up front. I’m a story teller. After graduation from the Coast Guard Academy in 1957, my twenty-eight years of active duty have given me a lot of fodder. I finally heeded my daughter’s pleas, “Dad, you have got to write those stories down,” and published my memoirs in 1975. Caught up in the writing experience, I moved on to publish a novel in 2019 and I'm continuing to write. It's my new number 1 hobby.
