WAIS Welcomes John Hesley (John Eipper, USA, 07/10/19 4:10 am)

It's a perfect day to introduce the newest WAISer, Dr John Hesley of Ft Worth, Texas. As we see below, John is a psychologist, world traveler, historian and all-around polymath.  John comes to WAIS thanks to a meeting this summer with WAISer extraordinaire Paul Pitlick in Prague.

Paul, thank you for bringing John aboard the Goodship WAIS!

John's bio:

John Hesley retired in May 2017 from the private practice of clinical psychology, having received a PhD in Experimental Psychology but retreading in clinical shortly thereafter. He was chiefly involved in psychological assessments--general psychology at the beginning but transitioning into neuropsychology. His professional activities also included writing scientific and popular books and articles, creating and directing several multi-discipline clinics, maintaining staff membership and providing services in psychiatric and general hospitals, and conducting national seminars. He taught at the university level in various departments, and he supervised young PhD psychologists in the clinical setting. John has always been heavily invested in hobbies far afield from psychology. After retirement, these intensified. His interests include art, photography, writing poetry, studying world history (specifically World War II), and daily study/practice in the German language. Until a major injury when he was 68, he was nationally ranked in masters track (200m, 400m, 800m). He lives with his wife of almost 40 years, Jan, who continues a psychotherapy practice. They have two children and three grandchildren. Jan and John have traveled internationally for years. This May they were in the Czech Republic where John participated in a memorial for his father, a B-17 navigator who was killed in the last major air mission in Europe in WWII. He is presently collaborating with a writer from The Smithsonian Magazine to tell the story of that last mission.

JE comments:   John Hesley is a WAIS "natural"--in a word, curious, worldly, and accomplished (OK, that's three words).  WWII occupies the #2 spot of WAISworld's most-discussed wars, after our trademark conflict, the Spanish Civil War.  John, your father's sacrifice deserves to be memorialized in a magazine of The Smithsonian's massive circulation.  I'll trust you'll keep us updated as the publication date nears.

John Hesley, welcome to WAIS!
