Author information

Daniel Lenihan, winner of the George Melendez Wright Award for Excellence, has been diving as a park ranger and archeologist for the National Park Service since 1972, and founded the Submerged Cultural Resources Unit (SCRU) in 1976 before being appointed the first chief in 1980. Over the last 25 years, Lenihan and the SCRU team have been the subject of national media stories and many TV documentaries on CBS, ABC, BBC, CNN, PBS, The Discovery and History Channels, and National Geographic. He has written frequently for "Natural History" and "American History," and co-authored, with Gene Hackman, the well-received sea adventure novel "Wake of the Perdido Star." A native New Yorker, he lives with his family in Santa Fe, NM.
