Think Back – often a retrospect delights the mind.” - Dante


Professor Boyle grew up in New York’s Hudson Valley, and in 1990 began taking classes at Coastal.  Upon graduating from Coastal, Mr. Boyle attended Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina where he earned his Masters of the Arts degree in American History.  He is currently reworking his Master’s thesis entitled “The Social Organizations and Leisurely Activities of the Georgetown Rice Planters: 1840-1861” into a forthcoming book entitled, “Forging Southern Nationalism in Antebellum Georgetown, South Carolina.”  Boyle is the author of several minor publications, as well as the well-received “Mansfield Plantation: A Legacy on The Black River” which was published by the History Press in 2014. Professor Boyle lives in Loris, South Carolina with his wife D’Andrea and their three children Brandon, Veda and Hannah.
