I was born in Urbana, Illinois to Dr. John Paschal and Vashti Cromwell McCollum on 24 December 1934. My life was pretty much uneventful as a typical white middle class child in a college educated family, in Champaign, Illinois. My father was a professor at the University of Illinois and my mother a housewife and world traveler in her later years.
In 4th grade I became involved in a Church-State battle involving sectarian religious classes in the Champaign public schools, culminating in a 8 to 1 landmark decision by the US Supreme Court.
I graduated from the University of Illinois with a bachelor degree in Geology in June, 1956 and a J.D from the U of I Law School in August 1962.
I was admitted to the New York bar in April 1963 and practiced in Rochester, NY for 34 years thereafter.
In 1995 I retired to the old MCCollum home place in Emerson, Ark. I worked for another 11 years at Southern Arkansas University in the IT Dept., before retiring again. During that time, I founded the Arkansas Chapter of Americans United for Separation of Church & State. Subsequently, I acquired an AAS degree in Agriculture at SAU and lack only one course for a BA in History, expected in May 2018 from SAU.
My wife and I have been active with both the county and State Democratic Committees for some 20 years
