Wallace Caminsky


WALLACE CAMINSKY was born in 1922, the first-born son of immigrant parents. After struggling through the Depression and World War II, where he served in the South Pacific, he finished college in 1947, graduating with a degree in English from Wayne State University, and was married the following year, soon to start a family of his own. Working for one of the Big Three automotive companies in Detroit, he wrote intermittently for the next twenty years, before embarking on a second career as a lawyer. He went to law school in the 1960s, and became an administrative law judge in 1975, serving in that position until his retirement in 1987. Always a voracious reader, his tastes in literature range from the short stories of James Joyce and P.G. Wodehouse to the novels of Charles Dickens, and the epic classics of Tolstoy...as well as the comedy of Monty Python.
