Texas Authors Institute of History

A Unique Museum that saves history, inspires the future, depth and gives to the present..

Philip Derrick was brought up as an Air Force brat before disappointing his father by joining the Army. He is a life member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and has a Ph.D in Education/History from the University of Idaho. He currently lives (after a decade in Texas) in the Cascade Mountains an hour away from Seattle, teaches high school history, and watches the deer pass by his living room window on a daily basis. In his study are more that 1,000 books, none of which his spouse allows outside the room since he leaves them lying around all over the place.
