I was born in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, in 1949 and grew up in Chester Heights and then Media in Delaware County. I attended Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA, and then the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD, where I received a PhD in European History. I lived in Germany from 1975-1980, where I met my wife, and afterward we moved to Lincoln, Nebraska, where I taught history at the University of Nebraska. In 1986 I moved to the Washington, DC, area where I worked as a historian for the CIA, and then in 1989 I became head of the Historical Office at NATO's Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe just outside Mons, Belgium. In 2015 I retired and moved to Emmendingen, Germany. I have been researching all lines of the Pedlow family since a college history project got me started in 1970 and have made several research trips to examine Irish records. I am also researching my other lines (paternal surnames Watson, Osborne, Chudleigh, Braund, Lee in England and maternal surnames Wick, Kaehler, von Eschwege, and Bloch in Germany).
