Eric Clements is professor of history at Southeast Missouri State University. The Atlantic liners were his earliest historical interest, an interest that led him to serve an enlistment in the U.S. Coast Guard and to write Captain of the Carpathia. His unpublished research projects include writing a history of the Second World War-era, U.S. Coast Guard cutter Mohawk for his master's thesis and two vessel histories for the "Historic American Engineering Record."
He is also the author of After the Boom in Tombstone and Jerome, Arizona: Decline in Western Resource Towns (University of Nevada Press, 2003, reissued 2014), and of numerous articles and book reviews about the history and historic preservation of the American West.
