D. A. Saguto, a fifth-generation artisan whose eighteenth-century ancestors were shoemakers in Maryland and North Carolina, has been master boot- and shoemaker for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation since 1990. The nation's leading researcher on eighteenth-century footwear, he has been a guest curator for many museums, including the Smithsonian Institution and National Park Service; a guest lecturer on shoemaking history at the University of Delaware and Virginia Commonwealth University; and a consultant on archaeological digs, shipwreck recoveries, shoe-related litigation, and Hollywood movies.
