J. Paul Henderson

© Daniel Jaems

J Paul Henderson was born and grew up in Bradford, West Yorkshire, gained a Master’s degree in American Studies and travelled to Afghanistan. He worked in a foundry, as a bus conductor, trained as an accountant and then, when the opportunity to return to academia arose, he left for Mississippi, returning four years later with a doctorate in 20th Century US
History. With American History university departments either closing or
contracting, he opted for a career in academic publishing.
He now lives in the North of England, drives a car and owns a television set. And that, in his own words, is 'about it'.
