John P. Warnock, professor emeritus of English at the University of Arizona, has been working on a five-volume project that is a memoir of his education combined with an education about nuclear weapons and the arms race from 1939 to 1989. As he worked on it, he developed an extensive chronology that included Tucson events and which took on a life of its own, as he puts it. Warnock had a new project, "Tucson: A Place Making." With some updates, it is now published as “Tucson: A Drama in Time.” Warnock says that when he is out and about and people learn of his book and chronology, most have a story to tell of their family connection to the history of Tucson. Warnock’s book is a history of the people of Tucson, the land, the cultures that made it and the community it was and has become.
