College professor emeritus with interest in Ecology, history (Civil War), and golf


Background Information

For thirty seven years Dr. Terman taught biology and environmental science at Tabor College in Hillsboro, Kansas and authored many scientific articles in the field of ecology and animal behavior. An avid golfer, he researched the potential of golf courses to be wildlife habitat and more environmentally compatible. He retired in 2006 to devote more time to writing. His first book in 1985, "Earth Sheltered Housing: Principles in Practice", described the building of his solar powered earth-covered home on fifteen acres of restored prairie and introduced solutions to the looming energy crisis. In 1996, Princeton University Press published his engaging story "Messages From An Owl" about the radiotracking of a hand-reared great horned owl--for over ten years! This book reads like a novel and won wide acclaim from scientists and general readers alike. Recently, Dr. Terman used his writing skills to enter the world of an ancestor who fought in the American Civil War. "Hiram's Honor: Reliving Private Terman's Civil War" is a dramatized first person account of his great-uncle's capture at Gettysburg and amazing survival as a prisoner of war at Richmond's Belle Island and the infamous Andersonville prison camps. Dr. Terman writes as if he were Private Hiram Terman of the 82nd Ohio Infantry in this unique, amazing tale of friendship, faith, hope, and survival against incredible odds.

Accomplishments


B. A. from Spring Arbor University and Ph. D in zoology from Michigan State University.

Hiram's Honor: Reliving Private Terman's Civil War
The unique thing about this book is that I assume the identity of my ancestor in all of his battles and prison misery. It was quite a challenge to match every detail that actually happened (dairies, letters, first-hand accounts) with a first person dramatized and riveting story of how I would have reacted in his situation.
