Professor Meyer lives in St. Louis with his wife, and graduated from high school here. His daughter and son both have their MBAs. He takes advantage of the many delights in St. Louis and is an avid sports fan. Travels take him to Asia, to California to visit his son and family, and to Zurich, Switzerland, to visit his daughter and family. For reading pleasure, he likes junk novels, especially mystery and spy thrillers.
