Author Lyman Hardeman spent his youth in Bryan and College Station, Texas. After receiving a degree in Electrical Engineering at Texas A&M (Class of '66), he worked at Texas Instruments, Inc., in Dallas where he developed military radar systems. From there, Hardeman spent several years in New York City as Department Editor for McGraw-Hill's Electronics Magazine.
For many years, Hardeman has held a deep interest in Texas history. Since 1995, he has operated Lone Star Junction--a popular website provided for the benefit of both Texans and "foreigners" alike. He is a life member of the Texas State Historical Association.
The author's family roots at A&M extend back to his great-grandfather Thomas Johnston Hardeman, a member of the first class enrolled in 1876.
Hardeman has published numerous magazine articles on a wide variety of subjects. Several of these articles have been translated and published in journals overseas. This is his first book.
