Winston OvertonAbout the Author

Winston Overton was born in Georgetown, British Guiana, South America: now independently known as “The Cooperative Republic of Guyana”. He is the eldest child followed by a brother, Aubrey Overton —Educator and Engineer of Georgetown Guyana, and a sister—the late Sgt. Shirley Overton-Campbell of New Amsterdam, Berbice, Guyana: from the union of the late Randolph Overton and Nova Eslyn Overton.

Winston was a former employee in the drawing offices of the Hydrographic and Sea Defense Department of the Ministry of Works and Hydraulics in Kingston, Georgetown, Guyana; and The Geological Survey Department, Brickdam, Georgetown, Guyana; before accepting a contract as a Cartographer with the Government of the Republic of Zambia, Central Africa—a country he was proud to call his second home.
At the end of that contract with the Government of Zambia, Winston travelled extensively throughout Africa and Europe before migrating to the United States. He worked at Chase Manhattan Bank and Manufacturers Hanover Trust Bank, in the late 1970s before joining the staff of the American Stock Exchange: finally retiring in 2002.
