Born June 8th, 1948, Gerald joined Watson Publishing in the early 1970’s shortly after returning from France where he had been working on an advanced degree in French naval history prior to the unanticipated closing and relocation of the archives. During his time with the company, he rapidly progressed from a clerk position to become senior editor prior to accepting a more lucrative appointment at Prentice Hall in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.
