About Ronald Epp
Born in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley shortly after the entry of America into the Second World War, Ron graduated from the University of Rochester having majored in history and philosophy. He added classical studies in the completion of his doctorate in 1971 from the State University of New York at Buffalo. Ron taught at the U.S. Naval Academy and public and private universities from Memphis to New Hampshire. As the new century dawned he undertook an archival-based inquiry into the life of the Father of Acadia. "Creating Acadia National Park: The Biography of George Bucknam Dorr" was published by Friends of Acadia in 2016.
