Nick Proctor is Professor of History at Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa. He began his explorations of the liberal arts during his undergraduate studies at Hendrix College in Arkansas. While studying abroad at Oxford University in his junior year, he became increasingly drawn to history because it seemed to be the discipline that would be most helpful in figuring out why things were the way they were. Since then he has picked up a few additional degrees and written some books, but his warmest memories are connected to the interactions that he’s had with students in and out of the classroom. Most of his work involves developing new titles for the Reacting to the Past series of immersive historical role-playing games.
