Happy 2012!

A very happy new year to old friends and new from all at the Michael J. Colligan History Project.  And an exciting year it promises to be, kicking off this February with the award of the annual Dolibois History Prize to William Cronon, President of the American Historical Association and Frederick Jackson Turner and Vilas Research Professor of History at University of Wisconsin-Madison.  Professor Cronon is one of America’s pioneers in the field of environmental history, whose published work has profoundly changed the way historians think and write about such interrelated topics as historical memory, urban development, nature and the land.

In the meantime, stay posted to this site for news of coming events and more.  Our video archive has been updated with Jim Blount’s December 7, 2011 talk on Hamilton’s Industrial Heritage, recorded before another massive public turn out.  Once again, thanks to all who support and attend our events, ensuring their continuing success and high quality.

Best wishes,

Matthew Smith,

Assistant Director, Michael J. Colligan History Project
