About the Author
 . . JAC (John Alexander Chambliss, III) was born in 1910 in Chattanooga, Tennessee. His father and both grandfathers were lawyers, as was he.
. . Educated at the strongly classical (Latin and Greek) Webb School of Bell Buckle, Tennessee, VMI, and Southwestern of Memphis (now Rhodes), he took his law degree at Cumberland University, in Lebanon, Tennessee, graduating in 1932, at age 21. He was a career trial lawyer.
. . In World War II he was a gunnery officer in the Navy in the South Pacific.
. . His late wife was the former Bena McVea of Baton Rouge.
. . JAC actively participated in the business, civic, and religious life of his community. He was an Episcopalian, a trustee of Webb School, a director and 2-time president of the YMCA, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Artsof London, where he both lectured and chaired lectures.
. . His hobbies were many and varied: travel, sketching, color photography, writing both prose and poetry – and the discovery and exploration of people!
. . He died in 2010 at age 99.
