George A. Kranz

George Kranz is a middle and high school teacher and a guest speaker to various high school  classes on the subject of World War I. Previously he was a Florida parole and probation officer working primarily with youthful offenders. His interest in World War I was sparked by the discovery of an old chest in the attic of a relative's house that contained a treasure trove of items owned by a WWI veteran who had served on the Western Front. Since then, he has been collecting WWI memorabilia including original U.S. uniforms, metals and equipment, and original and reproduction German uniforms, metals and equipment.
