Podcast 174: Drew Prehmus

Not many undergraduates publish a book, but Drew Prehmus did. Drew grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, where he now lives. In 2004, he enrolled at Hampden-Sydney College, where he majored in English. In his sophomore year, he started work on a book with General Sam Wilson, a veteran of World War II, intelligence officer during the Cold War, and commander in Vietnam. At the time, Sam was a professor and had been the president of the college (1992-2000). The project took seven years to complete. The result was General Sam: A Biography of Lieutenant General Samuel Vaughan Wilson.

Colin chats with Drew about his background, work at Hampden-Sydney, and the seven years he spent on Sam’s biography. He also provides an inside look at being a student at Hampden-Sydney as well as reminiscences about certain professors, such as the late Victor Cabas.
