Donald Herbert Daniels was lived in Medford, Or until he was 4. In 1957 the family moved to Leavenworth, KS and lived on the grounds of the VA Center where his Dad worked. In 1960 his 3rd grade class was part of the 1st stage of the desegregation of the Leavenworth Public Schools. A black teacher was placed there and a select group of around 13 students and the teacher were housed in a former store room in the school. This gave them a unique opportunity to do things, especially art, that the other 3rd grade classes did not do, e.g. ceramics. He graduated from Leavenworth High School in 1970 and enrolled at Kansas State University. He had a 2s student deferment from the Viet Nam draft. In 1971 his birthday was number 16 in the draft lottery. He graduated from KSU in 1974 Magna Cum Laude with a BS in Mathematics. He was reclassified as 1A for the draft but his draft board had met their quotas and he was never drafted. He was employed as a computer programmer with IBM's Federal Systems Division in Owego, NY. In 1975 he married Nancy Knopp in Woodbine, Ks. In June of 1975 he stared employment as a computer programmer for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas in Topeka, KS. He remained there for 32+ years and took early retirement at age 55 as a Project Leader. He later worked as a data analyst for the Kansas State Employee Health PLan for 4 years.
