With over thirty years of professional historical research and archival experience, I work with individuals, institutions, foundations, and businesses to help them achieve their goals of preserving their history and legacy.

My experience can guide your history project from start to finish. I organize and develop new archives and conduct research in existing collections. I create digital content, write articles and books, and give presentations, and teach classes.


What I am working on right now…

Please take a look at the site. Examples of my research and writing can be found on the Publications page. Visit the Contact page or send me an email.

Thanks for stopping by!
