Abstract
Written under the name "Malcolm Franklin", this article offers an account of my journey from first-generation college graduate from the rural midwest to college professor.  I wrote it as a pedagogical text to give my undergraduates and graduate history students at ETSU a better sense of the challenges that face them if they choose to pursue an academic career path.
