Louis Schmier received his A.B. in History from Adelphi College in 1962, my M.A. from St. John’s University in 1963, and my Ph.D. in History from the University of North Carolina in 1969. But, He prefers to use that “Dr” stuff only if I can get a discount or a good table. He have been teaching students as a member of the History Department at Valdosta State University in Georgia since 1967 when VSU was VSC. Having retired on December 1, 2012, He now currently hold the rank of Professor Emeritus.
