    Roger E. Kammerer, Jr., is a freelance artist and local historian living in Greenville, N.C. He was born in 1956 in Nebraska, but spent most of his early life in Swansboro, N.C. Under the mentorship of noted N.C. historian, Tucker Reed Littleton, Kammerer obtained a love for North Carolina history. After receiving a scholarship, Kammerer enrolled in the School of Art at East Carolina University in Greenville in 1974. To date, he has designed numerous book covers, has worked on television commercials and produced artwork for homes and businesses. Kammerer is also known for his oil portraits, historical paintings and numerous mural projects.

    In 1984, Kammerer was among the charter members who organized the Pitt County Family Researchers, Inc., a local genealogical group. Currently, he is president of the group, and editor of its quarterly journal. In 2004 the Pitt County Genealogical Quarterly received the award from the North Carolina Genealogical Society for the best genealogical publication of the year. Since 1985 Kammerer has also written a column on Pitt County and Greenville history for the Greenville Times. He is a lifetime member of the Pitt County Historical Society, and in recent years has served on the board of the Village of Yesteryear, a complex of twenty-one historic buildings and extensive collection of farm life artifacts. In addition, Kammerer has led several walking tours of the historic downtown area of Greenville, and has authored, or co-authored, twenty-one books and booklets on local history and genealogy.
