He has been studying and teaching ever since. After one semester at Ohio University he had to go back to work again in the Red Brush. After that came another semester at the University, and then a year of teaching in a one-room school, and then long enough at Rio Grande College, Ohio, to get his B.A. in 1927. He got his M.A. later from Ohio State University in Columbus - and, in 1953, was awarded an honorary degree of Doctor of Education from Rio Grande College. In the years between he has been elementary school principal, high school principal, county superintendent of schools, and, since 1946, Superintendent of Schools in Jackson, Ohio.
Married to his wife when she was sixteen, they are the parents of three grown children. Out of the Red Brush is his first novel - as a matter of fact his first fictional writing of any kind. It was written in long hand at free moments at night in his office, and then pecked out on the typewriter. And it is a novel of which any writer would be proud, and for which all honest writers will envy him. Of it Kermit Daugherty says: "I have been steeped in the life of the tale I tell. The Red Brush way of life was mine in the formative years of youth, and in my heart it is still home."
