Carson is one of Duke's history librarians who also provides reference and support to the Markets and Management program. Carson serves as a reference librarian in both Lilly and Perkins, so you'll see him on the bus and in both libraries!

He is a Durham native and Duke graduate from the third quarter of the twentieth century. His son is a member of the Trinity class of 2013. In addition to his library activities, Carson sings and plays acoustic guitar around town with a trio, the Hollow Rock Ramblers (but perhaps better known as the Comb-Overs).
