Mr. Stocking's literary talent was fostered by early association with both small town and metropolitan newspaper work. This was followed by college training, where he specialized in mathematics, literature, and Scriptural origins.
He was a newspaper correspondent, teacher, university secretary, author, lecturer, publisher, and mining and metallurgical engineer. He was sent twice to the jungle of Columbia, South America, in search of lost Spanish gold mines.
