In "Our Wisdom Years with Winfred Hooper, J.D.", 85 years young, is the husband of Mary Jane Hooper, M.S., psychotherapist and trainee with I.I.H.S. in Fort Worth, Texas.

The director of I.I.H.S., Myrtle Heery, Ph.D., interviewed Win at our Extended Training, June, 2013, Santa Cruz, CA.

On this 50th anniversary of JFK's death, we are honored to post this interview with Win who was with JFK and Jackie the day before and morning of JFK's tragic death.

He tried over 100 jury trials in his 53 years of service, which would be unheard of now.

Win was active in the democratic party in Fort worth, Texas.

He won the Blackstone Award in 1993. An award given to outstanding attorneys who show the highest ethics and abilities in the legal profession. It is presented by the Tarrant County Bar Association of about 300 members.

Win has remained so young at heart as this interview shows bringing wisdom to each of us on not growing old.
