Dr. Marc E. McClure

2016 Research Excellence Award

Dr. Marc E. McClure received the Research Excellence Award for his research on Kiffin Rockwell. A question sparked by a date on a tombstone of Cocke County WWI hero Kiffin Rockwell started Dr. Marc E. McClure on a research path that has included visits to local sites connected with Rockwell, research into his family and military career, visits to out-of-state research facilities, and finally to a documentary film about Rockwell. In April, McClure screened the film in France, where Rockwell died a century ago.
