Dan T. Carter is an American historian.

Life[edit]

Carter graduated from University of South Carolina, University of Wisconsin, and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, with a Ph.D. in 1967. He taught at the University of Maryland, and the University of Wisconsin.[1] He was Kenan University Professor at Emory University,[2] and Educational Foundation Professor at University of South Carolina, retiring in 2007. In 2009, he was the Dow Research Professor at the Roosevelt Center in Middelburg, the Netherlands.[3] He was president of the Southern Historical Association.

In his 1991 article for The New York Times, "The Transformation of a Klansman", regarding the true identity of author Asa Earl Carter (who wrote as Forrest Carter), Carter suggested that their shared Southern heritage might make the two men distant cousins; this suggestion has subsequently been put forward as fact in later publications.[4][5][6]
