Coffee With Jeff #183: The Great Imposter

28 mins - Published Sun, Jul 28, 2019 by Jeff Kelley

Imagine a man who was a civil engineer, a sheriff’s deputy, an assistant prison warden, a doctor of applied psychology, a hospital orderly, a lawyer, a child-care expert, a Benedictine monk, a Trappist monk, a cancer researcher, a teacher and a military ship doctor and surgeon. He acquired all these positions without ever graduating high school.

He was known as the Great Imposter. Today I have the story of Ferdinand Waldo Demara on the 183 episode of Sunday Morning Coffee with Jeff.
