Arthur C. "Art" Unger was born in Brooklyn, NY and currently resides in Wilmington, NC with his wife Grace.
He graduated from Brooklyn College, with a BS in Accounting. During his business career he has worked for American Airlines, Butler Aviation International, ABC Air Freight, and lastly owned and managed, for 35 years, a Financial Services Conglomerate (which provided private accounting, tax, financial consulting, commercial collection agency, turn-around management and business liquidation services). He is currently retired from business and devotes his time to writing.
He was one of the foremost private collectors of Custerianna. His collection has included a vast library, with many rare first editions, artifacts, autographs, ephemera, including original diaries, journals and letters, memorabilia and photographs, many of which were believed to be unpublished.
His fascination with George Armstrong Custer and the Battle of the Little Big Horn began with a book report he prepared in the fourth grade. He has since spent over fifty years trying to unravel the mystery which shrouds of the events that occurred on June 25, 1876.
