Raymond Boyington

Biography

Born on a farm in central Maine, seventh of eight 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 and to 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 three, Danielle, Dedrick and Nate (all very much loved), Ray currently lives in central Florida 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 plans to publish a comprehensive collection of Peter’s extant works by the close of 2012. Other plans in the works for Ray include a new online guide for beginning students of chemistry, a book about sunflowers for budding young scientists, and a collection of portraits from five decades of amateur photography.
