Frederick Schultz

 

Only months after receiving a BA in English from a small college in Pennsylvania, Frederick Schultz embarked on a career in publishing that includes magazine positions from editorial assistant to editor-in-chief, and most everything in between. He has worked on the staffs of the Harrisburg, PA-based American History Illustrated, British Heritage, Civil War Times Illustrated, and Country Journal, and the U.S. Naval Institute’s Proceedings and Naval History magazines in Annapolis. While at the Naval Institute, he received a 2007 “Telly” Award for his work as associate producer of the video collection “Americans at War” (a Veterans Day special aired on PBS), and he is the author of the book History Makers: Interviews (2000). Fred’s freelance-writing work has appeared in American Heritage, Bluegrass Unlimited, Chevron USA, the Chicago Tribune, Cobblestone, Maryland Life, Maryland Magazine, and VFW. He is currently a contributing writer for Naval History Online and What’s Up? Annapolis, where he was a finalist for a 2019 national Folio “Eddie” award for city and regional publications. He lives in Annapolis with his wife and their dog.
