Gerald Owen Grow is professor of magazine journalism at Florida A&M University. He completed high school in Tallahassee, Florida, graduated from Harvard in 1964 and received a Ph.D. in English from Yale in 1968 (in the peaceful days before Deconstruction), with a dissertation on Shakespeare's tragedies and Milton's Paradise Lost. He spent a year of postgraduate study at Pembroke College, Cambridge.

He has taught at Yale, San Francisco State, St. Mary's College of California, Florida State University, and Florida A&M University--where he coordinates the magazine program and advises Journey, the FAMU student magazine.

Dr. Grow is the author of Florida Parks: A Guide to Camping in Nature (a nature-lover's guide to the Florida outdoors, now going into its sixth edition since 1981). He is also an internationally unrecognized cartoonist.
