By Alisa Armbrecht 

Here's The Icon's third installment in the now-famous "who am I?" column. To read the previous column click here.

• I am originally from Minnesota.  I moved to Ada in 1977.

• I was a Professor of Communications at ONU for 25 years.

• I served as a clerk in the Navy for four years and was stationed in the Great Lakes, San Diego, and Yokohama, Japan.

• I was the first person in Japan to receive an IBM electronic typewriter.

• I am an extensive traveler.  I have been in all 50 states as well as New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, Switzerland, Germany, Turkey, Egypt, Tunisia, Amsterdam, Canada, China, Japan, England, Scotland, France, Italy, Greece, Spain, Norway, Finland, Estonia, Russia, Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Aruba, Curacao, and India.  (This person has visited every place on his “bucket list”.)

• During my travels I have walked on the Great Wall of China, seen the pyramids, ridden a camel, and seen the beauty and grandeur of the Taj Mahal.

• The best meal of my travels was eaten in New Delhi at the Imperial Hotel.  The meal was jumbo prawns in mild curry sauce.

• My favorite drink is a martini.

So…who am I?

Watch the Ada Icon later this week for the answer. In the meantime feel free to post your guess on this story.
