Carteret County author David Stick dedicated much of his career to studying shipwrecks and maritime heroes of the Outer Banks. Beginning as a World War II correspondent in the Pacific Theater, Stick returned to North Carolina and began studying the Graveyard of the Atlantic. Part of his research involved contacting wreck survivors and visiting the vessel, if possible. Towards the end of his life, Stick donated many materials to the Outer Banks History Center for continued use. He passed away in 2009.
