Gaff astutely crafts a biography [of Lou Gehrig].
I'm Alan D. Gaff, author and President of Historical Investigations, a company specializing in historical research. With over 40 years experience in American history, I've published on everything from the Civil War to Damon Runyon. When not working jigsaw puzzles and listening to music with Maureen, my wife of 50 years, we enjoy watching deer and birds in our backyard. I like reading a good book until 3 a.m., a cold Diet Coke, and watching Indianapolis Colts football.
With a Master's Degree in American History from Ball State University, my books have won Awards of Merit from the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, a University Press Best Seller, and finalist for both the Distinguished Writing Award Army Historical Foundation and New Mexico and Arizona Book Award in Biography.
