About C. T. Fitzgerald
C.T. Fitzgerald was born in South Buffalo, New York. While attending Canisius High School, Canisius College (B.A.), and Canisius Graduate School (M.A.), he also worked as a union card-carrying longshoreman (Local 1286) in the grain elevators of Buffalo, in the blast furnaces of Bethlehem Steel, as a bartender where his father and grandfather tended bar before him, and as a licensed teacher for the City of Buffalo. He attended Kent State for his Ph.D. in Literature (2004), and he has been married to Kathleen for 45 years. They are the parents of Ryan, Craig, and Tim and the happy grandparents (“Pops” and “Nana”) of Lachlyn, Shea, and Emilia.
Dr. Fitzgerald is weak in religious faith, but strong in the hope that we go to a far better place when the ballgame is over. Being a philosophical Cretan, Dr. Fitz’s religious beliefs have been simply stated in the past: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” If humanity actually followed this easily understood rule, the world would be a much better place.
