The author, James L. Felder, is a native South Carolinian. Having grown up in Sumter, SC, he has lived and worked in Atlanta, GA; New York City, Chicago, IL and Washington, DC.
Following the completion of his undergraduate studies at Clark College in Atlanta, GA, he spent two years in the United States Army serving with the Honor Guard Ceremonial Unit in the Nation's capital. After his tour of duty with the Army, he matriculated at Howard University School of Law completing his studies in June 1967, and returned to South Carolina.
His selection to serve with the Honor Guard represented only the tenth black American to serve with this elite unit. The first nine preceded him by several months.
