From The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guid Thirty-Sixth Edition::
Eric C. Caren was born (a collector) in 1959. By the age of 5 he had collected stamps, coins and baseball cards. He started collecting rare newspapers at the age off 11, after stumbling upon an abandoned house full of them in Rockland County, NY where he lived. In high school in the mid-1970's he apprenticed with a rare book dealer in Connecticut and set up as a dealer at a comic book convention in NYC sometime around 1975. He graduated from the University of Maryland with a Business degree in 1981. His first job was director of a gallery that dealt in rare newspapers in London in Covent Garden Market soon after it opened. He established The Caren Archive, a full-time business selling historical collectibles in 1983. He co-founded HGA Auctions with Dennis Holzman. He is a former Director of The Ephemera Society of America, a member of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America, and a Consultant to The Newseum (Mr Caren's first newspaper collection will be the most substantial part of their permanent collection). He is a partner with Stephen A. Goldman in the business that bears his name as well as in OldNews, Inc. He has authored nine books using rare newspapers -- The Extra series with Castle Books - and has co-authored his 10th book, The Civil War Smithsonian Institution Headliners Series with Dr. Stephen A. Goldman. Reprints of papers from his and Dr. Goldman's archive are sold at The Smithsonian Institution and The Holocaust Memorial Museum.
