Paul Boles graduated from Friends University in 1954, receiving his bachelor of arts in sociology. He also received his bachelor of science in history from Friends in 1958. Paul is currently the owner of Boles Ranch, a Black Angus cattle ranch near Liberal, Kan.

Paul and his wife have a daughter, Sarah Foreman, and a son, Ernest P. Boles III. Their daughter is a partner of their family ranch and their son works for Harold Quandt Holdings in Germany.
Paul has been the 1950s decade Campus Connection class agent since the very first newsletter went out in the spring of 2001.
