In addition, I have had the massive honor of having several publishers produce works of mine of the historical variety which truly have no real home in the urological literature at present.
The final chapter of my career has found me back in Tucson, Arizona where my academic career started. I have increasingly become affiliated with the AUA and the William P. Didusch Center for Urologic History over the past five years. I have come to know Rainer and Dorothy Engel and their brood at each subsequent annual meeting. My first love in history is books, and then comes artifacts - a bit different from Rainer's background. The museum is a treasure trove of urological artifacts and the library is in need of careful scrutiny and acquisitions.
I feel the great potential for the American Urological Association's museum at the Linthicum headquarters and hope to follow the paths already begun by those on whose shoulders I will stand.
