Walter John Raymond
Walter John Raymond (February 24, 1930 - October 14, 2007) was an American publisher, professor of political science, and chairman of Saint Paul's College's Department of Social Sciences until he retired in 1986. He was part of the Polish underground and received the Partisan Cross from the Polish Armed Forces.
During World War II, the family farm was occupied by German troops and later by Russian forces. The family hid two young Jewish men despite daily Gestapo searches. Raymond was running messages for the Polish underground when he was 14.
Education and professorships
Raymond worked as a bus dispatcher in Washington, D.C. until completing his master's degree in political science from the University of Maryland in 1961. He earned a doctorate in political science from Clark Atlanta University.
In 1967, Raymond and his wife founded Brunswick Publishing Corp., initially so he could publish his 767pp. volume now called the Dictionary of Politics, Selected American and Foreign Political and Legal Terms.
