Paul David “PD” Wadler, a psychologist, was the 5th generation of his family to live in rural Wharton, TX.  PD first learned about cohousing from visiting his friend Jory in Cambridge MA and was impressed with the sense of community and the diversity but especially the different generations living together. In his clinical work, PD’s focus is on veterans with PTSD and on couples. In the rest of his life, he is a long-time community activist in the LGBT, Women’s Rights, and Black Lives Matter Movements and is an active Unitarian Universalist. He returned to the Houston area after 25 years in Chicago and is still an avid Cubs fan. In addition to baseball, he loves crossword puzzles and trivia and was a one-day champion on Jeopardy!  PD is proud of his family’s long Texas history. His great-grandparents were among the early Jewish settlers of Texas and ran a Dry Goods store on Wharton’s courthouse square. PD’s hometown is about an hour down the coast from Houston and was part of Stephen F. Austin’s original Land Grant and home to newscaster Dan Rather and playwright Horton Foote among others.
