Personal Profile

I am Loren Bullock, have lived in Gaithersburg, Maryland, since 1989, in the Washington, DC area since 1970.  My wife is Jean Pagán-Bullock, a Realtor with Long & Foster Realtors, Rockville, MD.  We are members of Bethesda United Methodist Church, Bethesda, Maryland, an active family-oriented church with a mission statement of “Wash More Feet!” and a truly “Open Doors, Open Minds, Open Hearts” church.

I grew up in the Boston area in the 1920s and 1930s, graduated from Mount Hermon School in Northfield, Massachusetts in 1942.  I was commissioned as an Ensign in the Navy during WorldWar II, and was a Communications Officer on supply ships first in the Atlantic and then in the Pacific toward the end of the war.  I returned to DePauw University in Indiana under the GI Bill graduating in 1947 with majors in Math and Physics.  My graduate work was at Indiana University (MS Physics) for the next four years.  I taught Physics at Indiana University, Hamilton College and Boston University.   I joined IBM in 1956 at the beginning of computers, was involved in the development of computer time-sharing at MIT in the 1960s and then in the IBM marketing of computers to colleges and universities for the next 23 years.   I retired from IBM in 1989 as the Personal Computers were becoming our basic information tool and the Internet was just getting started.   A fascinating time.

I have become a student of history and anthropology as well as theology over the years, as reflected in these essays.  I was a Docent (i.e., tour guide) at the Smithsonian in Washington, DC, since 1988, first at the American History Museum, and more recently at the National Postal Museum, retiring in March, 2016.

Life is good!
