  1. Interesting article. Good insights into the impact of the public historians on children later entering history-related fields. Just as important is that the majority who won’t go into history for a livlihood may incorporate it into their lives as citizens, legislators, jurists, and lawyers. A lot of us were inspired to grapple with the effects of history as adults by learning about history as children.
