Libraries are filled with volumes detailing the lives of famous outstanding men and women . . . Parks are full of their statues . . . impressive buildings, airports, and streets bear their names . . . However, few manuscripts are intended to describe the life and times of a common or ordinary man living in some random slice of time. This writing is an attempt to give the reader a view of the life and times of a so-called common man who lived in the twentieth century—unknown for great deeds, wealth, great intellect, discovery, or, for that matter any great thing of merit.
This is the autobiographical story of such a man.
