Gary Kempf has a history of compiling history.
The Elizabethtown resident has several books to his name, including works about Elizabethtown, Vine Grove and West Point.
But he doesn’t consider himself an author.
“I’m not a writer; I’m a compiler,” Kempf said.
As a compiler, Kempf’s name can be found on works such as “Methodism in Elizabethtown, KY — And Some Other Things of Interest,” “The History of Vine Grove, Kentucky” and “West Point, KY & The Brickyard.”
