Nick Wynne is a native of McRae, Georgia, but has lived in Kansas, Alabama and Florida much longer than he spent in his home state. He graduated from Telfair County High School in 1961 and spent three years in the United States Army. He served overseas in Asmara, Eritrea, Ethiopia. He received his Bachelor of Science in Education in 1969, a Master’s Degree in History in 1970 and his doctorate in 1980 from the University of Georgia. He taught at Southern Technical Institute (now Southern Polytechnic State University) from 1970 until 1980. After a brief stint as the Executive Director of the Wyandotte Child Care Association in Kansas City, Kansas, he taught at the University of South Alabama for two years and then taught at the University of South Florida. In 1987, he became the Executive Director of the Florida Historical Society and retired from that position in July 2008.
Wynne currently resides in Rockledge, Florida, with his wife, Debra.
