Gil Gaudia (1929-2021) was born in the Bronx two weeks after the Stock Market Crash of 1929. He earned licenses to operate passenger-carrying sailing vessels and airplanes, and to practice psychology. As a member of the faculty at the State University of New York College at Fredonia for seventeen years, he taught classes; published over a dozen articles on topics in education and psychology; worked with Native American educators on the Seneca and Onondaga Reservations; and, as an amateur astronomer, directed the college's planetarium for two years. In 1977 he was a fellow at The Albert Ellis Institute in Manhattan.
Gaudia authored Outside, Looking In, a work of fiction based on accurate portrayals of real people and actual events. Gene Geminni, the main character, believed that relying upon God or prayer was illogical, and often enthusiastically practiced by those who are the least ethical. He had come to know fair and honest people who were extremely skeptical of theistic claims and beliefs--and that's the way he wanted to be, true to his rational ideals and ethical standards at the same time. Did he succeed? You be the judge.
