John Perkins




John Perkins was born on a farm a few miles south of Clear Lake, Iowa, in 1912. By the age of nine years, on his parent's dairy farm, milking cows was part of his daily chores.

His father had been a newspaper man and John, the fourth of four children, was born with ink in his blood.

After high school, he attended Iowa State College where, as an extracurricular activity, he worked on the student newspaper.

After college, he married Marlus, his high-school sweetheart, and they are now in their 64th year. They have a son and daughter, three grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.
