Ernest G. Fischer spent his
lifetime researching the extraordinary life of Robert Potter, a brilliant,
nineteenth-century Texas pioneer. Potter served as a North Carolina congressman
and signed the Texas Declaration of Independence. However, he is best known for
founding the Texas navy. In Robert Potter: Founder of the Texas Navy,
Mr. Fischer explores Potter's lifelong interest in the sea as well as his
incredible record of leadership and achievement during a volatile period in
history. A navy admiral and Texas native himself, Mr. Fischer's life was no
doubt influenced by the famous Texan.
Though he was born in Texas, Mr.
Fischer later resided in New Orleans. He studied at the University of Texas and
then earned his degree in journalism from the University of Missouri. He spent
fifty years of his life as a writer and held teaching positions at various
universities, including Tulane University, West Texas State University, and the
University of Texas at Austin.
