Schuyler Kropf graduated from West Virginia University in 1985 with a degree in journalism. Previously he worked at The Dominion Post in Morgantown, W.Va., before coming to The Post and Courier in 1987. He has covered most all of the "beats" at the paper, starting with the Charleston County School Board, to the Statehouse, political and presidential campaigns and the effort to raise the Confederate submarine Hunley. He is co-author of a non-fiction work covering the history of the sub and it's recovery, "Raising the Hunley." In his off time, Schuyler (pronounced Sky-lar) enjoys fishing and cruising the local creeks and waterways around Charleston.
