About the Author:

A native and lifelong resident of Pinellas County, James Anthony Schnur has witnessed amazing transformations in his community. After completing Associate of Arts credentials at both the University of Tampa and St. Petersburg Junior College, Schnur earned a bachelor’s degree in History at the University of South Florida (USF). He later completed master’s degrees in History and Library Science at USF. Jim won the President’s Prize for the best undergraduate essay in Florida History from the Florida Historical Society in 1989, then became the only person to have won both undergraduate and graduate recognition when he was awarded the LeRoy Collins Prize for best graduate history essay for two consecutive years, in 1991 and 1992. Also in 1991, Schnur received the Pinellas County Historical Society’s annual scholarship, starting a long relationship between Schnur and that organization that continues to this day. Jim has held many offices in the county historical society, including president or acting president during the years, 1994-1996, 2005-2007, and 2009.

Schnur shares his love of history and his desire to teach research skills with the community. He has served as a reference librarian, head of adult services, and assistant library director at two Pinellas County public libraries. Since 1996, he has taught history courses as an adjunct member of the faculty at Eckerd College’s Program for Experienced Learners (PEL). In addition to working as a center administrator and academic advisor for PEL, he has conducted lifelong learning classes on a variety of history topics for Eckerd College’s Senior College and Elderhostel (now known as “Road Scholar”). Beginning in 2002, Schnur became the archivist and special collections librarian at the Nelson Poynter Memorial Library at University of South Florida St. Petersburg (USFSP). His responsibilities include preserving local and regional history collections, assisting researchers from the university and community, and providing academic support to USFSP’s Master of Liberal Arts in Florida Studies, the only degree of its kind in the State of Florida. He also has taught undergraduate courses in U.S. and Florida history at USFSP, as well as a graduate course in Archival Management through the University of South Florida’s School of Information in Tampa, as an adjunct member of the teaching faculty.

In addition to his many lectures and public programs, Schnur has shared his research of Florida history through publications. He has previously served as the editor for Punta Pinal, a newsletter formerly published by the Pinellas County Historical Society. He currently assists the Florida History Society’s editor by compiling notable Florida history scholarship in publication for an annual bibliographic essay in the Florida Historical Quarterly. He has written articles, book reviews, and book chapters in areas such as Florida history and oral history. His photographic history on Largo, part of Arcadia Publishing’s Images of America Series, was released March 2011.

An avid fan of the Tampa Bay Rays, Schnur enjoys summers at his beloved perch in Tropicana Field. Throughout the year, Schnur and his wife also enjoy exploring the many beautiful parks and trails in the Tampa Bay region.
