One of my favorite professors, and one who helped me see the leader inside me, just paid me a wonderful compliment about my book; Milton Foster was Department Head for English at Eastern Michigan University when I attended. He drew me out of class and invited me to participate in student government. Milt is a WWI Army Air Corps veteran and and mentor and role model for me.
Because he is a retired English professor and because he is a man I respect, his words below mean a lot to me:
From Milton Foster: “Hi David – Your book of poems is wonderful. I especially enjoy the scenes from your life in the Pittsburgh area and your life in Michigan because I know those places well. Your poems are rich in concrete and specific details, making them very readable. Milt Foster”
