Biographical Note

William Greer Albergotti (1923-2018) served in the U.S. Army after enlisting in 1942 while a student at Clemson College. After the war, he returned to finish his degree at Clemson. Albergotti's interest in genealogy and history led him to write two books relating to his family history and the history of coastal South Carolina: Albergotti Creek: The Chronicles of a Colonial Family of the South Carolina Sea Islands and Abigail's Story: Tides at the Doorstep.
