About the Author

Robert M. Craig

Robert M. Craig

Robert M. Craig is an historian who taught for 40 years at the architecture school at Georgia Tech. He resides in Atlanta but considers Ocean City his summer home. He served on the Ocean City Beach Patrol from 1960-65, and between 2010 and 2015 he and his wife Carole restored Bay Breeze cottage (now on the National Register of Historic Places). The house was built circa 1950 by Craig’s father, Captain Robert S. Craig of the Beach Patrol, and for many years Bay Breeze provided summer housing for the family and various members of the lifeguard organization. The younger Craig is a Vietnam veteran (U. S. Navy), received a Ph.D. from Cornell University in 1973, and has published nine books (mostly architectural history); he will bring a wide range of interests to this new series of feature articles about Ocean City “From the Pen of the Captain’s Kid.”
