Carol Masters grew up in Chicago during the 1940s and ’50s in two South Side neighborhoods. As a student, graduate student, and faculty wife, she lived in Bloomington, IL, Manhattan, KS, Vermillion, SD, and Kingsville, TX. In the early 198s, Masters’s children and their friends got her involved in the anti-nuclear movement. She has since spent time in jail for nonviolent protests at weapons contractors’ doors and senators’ offices.
