James H. Kahn earned a master’s in history at the University of Washington in 1994 at the age of 67, following a successful career in the textile business. He authored "Escape Artist" in Columns magazine (March 2013), an article about University of Washington history professor W. Stull Holt, who during World War II created escape-and-evade tactics for allied pilots downed behind enemy lines. Kahn was at work on a larger biography of Holt when he died on December 6, 2017 at the age of 89.
