Black Campbell is the alias for Scott Rhymer, a historian and writer based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he lives with his wife, daughter, and cat.
He has previously been an intelligence analyst for the US Army and government contractors, a police auxiliary, a freelance writer (mostly in the roleplaying game industry), and pursued his doctorate in Modern American and European History at the University of New Mexico. The experience at UNM has convinced him that it is time to reconsider the 19th Century liberal arts education, and move toward more focused, specialized education or vocational training, rather than liberal arts degrees that are fit only to get one a job at a call center. He is associate faculty at the University of Phoenix’s Albuquerque Campus, teaching history and political science.
“The Black Campbells” was an appellation for the Campbells of Argyll, a Scottish clan alternately connected to Scottish nationalism or Unionism with England, depending on time and the amount of money involved with the cause. Mercenaries, in other words.
