The Lost Nation is a repository of information about (mostly) the Wolfe family: here you’ll find photographs, legends, documents, and genealogies. But this is also a place for me to write about Iowa and my hometown of Davenport.
I am a writer and editor living in Charlottesville, Virginia. I am managing editor of Encyclopedia Virginia and author of the site’s blog. My essay “The Case of the Hungry Stranger,” about my father’s death, was published by The Morning News on May 3, 2013. Another essay, “Stories from the Lost Nation,” appeared in Colorado Review in its Summer 2009 issue. Other writing has found its way into VQR, the University of Virginia Magazine, Jazz.com (here and here), and the San Francisco Chronicle.
