My primary interest as a
historian is in American political, diplomatic, and military
history, specifically related to the mid-twentieth century time
period (1940 through 1960). My secondary interest is in the
history of Miami, Florida, during the first half of the twentieth
century. This is
related to my intent to write a book about my great-grandfather, a
Miami Police Officer from that era. The book would not only
focus on his life, but the Miami Police Department and the City of
Miami during that time period.
