Clyde Edgerton is a writer and educator of Durham County, N.C.

From the description of Clyde Edgerton papers, 1918-2004. WorldCat record id: 33082391

Clyde Edgerton was born in 1944 in Bethesda, N.C., a small community in east Durham County. He was an Air Force pilot, 1966-1971, serving in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War, 1970-1971. Following the war, he attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, earning masters and Ph.D. degrees in English education.

Raney, his first novel, was published in 1985. The plot of the novel, revolving around the marriage of a Free Will Baptist and an Episcopalian, led to Edgerton's leaving the teaching staff at Campbell University in Buies Creek, N.C., a Baptist institution. He later taught at Saint Andrew's College in Laurinburg, N.C.; at Duke University; at Millsaps College; and, beginning in 1998, at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.

Edgerton's other published novels include Walking Across Egypt (1987), The Floatplane Notebooks (1988), Killer Diller (1991), In Memory of Junior (1992), Redeye: A Western (1995), Where Trouble Sleeps (1997), and Lunch at the Piccadilly (2003). His short story Changing Names appeared in New Stories from the South: The Year's Best, 1990, a collection published by Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill. Other works include Understanding the Floatplane (1987) and Cold Black Peas (1990), both published in limited editions by Mud Puppy Press.
