Born on a farm in central Maine, eighth of nine children, Raymond L Boyington grew up in New Haven, Connecticut. Following undergraduate and graduate studies at the University of Connecticut, and a brief stint at teaching prep school, he returned to UConn to teach in and oversee the General and Honors Chemistry programs. Ray spent most of the final third of his teaching career at San Francisco University High School where he taught courses in Chemistry and Biology. Father of two, Sarah and Katie, and grandfather of four, Danielle, Dedrick, Nate and Emmett (all very much loved), Ray currently lives in coastal California with his life partner, the writer Jack Andrew Urquhart. Editing, formatting and publishing a portion of Urquhart’s work inspired Ray to undertake the same effort on behalf of his former companion, the late Peter Marshall Bell, thus honoring another consummate man of letters. Ray hopes yet to publish a comprehensive collection of Peter’s extant works. Other plans in the works for Ray include a new online guide for beginning students of chemistry, a book about sunflowers for budding young naturalists, and a collection of portraits from five decades of amateur photography.
