Thank you again,
The 39th Annual Conference on DC Historical Studies Committee
A big thank you to all those who participated in the 39th Annual Conference on D.C. Historical Studies!
We had over 120 speakers, moderators, History Network participants, and tour leaders.
We drew nationally as well as locally for our presenters–a tribute to the reputation and value placed upon the conference. It was a good mix of age and experience–students to senior scholars. We had more than a two dozen organizations represented in the bustling History Network, and well over 200 conference attendees.
A dedicated, hard-working conference committee
pulled it all off (Brett Abrams, Johanna Bockman, Jeffrey Donahoe, Matthew Gilmore (Chair), Mark Greek, Stephen Hansen, Ida Jones, Jane Freundel Levey, Adam Lewis, Jenny Masur, John Muller, Kimberly Springle, John Richardson, Gary Scott, Mary Ternes, Ruth Trocolli).
Thank you to our hosts, the Historical Society of Washington DC, Special Collections/DC Public Library, and Center for the Study of Public History and Public Culture (George Washington University)
Conference sponsors: Association of the Oldest Inhabitants of D.C., Center for the Study of Public History and Public Culture (GWU), Charles Sumner School Museum & Archives, Cultural Tourism DC, H-DC, Washington, D.C. History, Historical Society of Washington, D.C., History Press, Humanities Council of Washington, DC, Rainbow History Project,Special Collections/DC Public Library (Washingtoniana Division).
We thank the Humanities Council of Washington DC, the Association of Oldest Inhabitants of DC, Friends of the Washingtoniana Division, History Press and anonymous donors for their financial support.
This support allowed us an ambitious expanded conference–returning the Letitita Woods Brown Lecture to Thursday evening, filling out the program with sessions into Saturday afternoon, parallel with two tours, and a special tour on Sunday.
Soon to come will be images from the sessions; We will be adding as many of the speaker presentations as are made available to us.
Folks wishing to join the conference planning committees (program and logistics) should express their interest by email to: email@example.com
Our next meeting will be in November to wrap up this conference and begin
on the next.
I would like to thank the conference committee for all the work they put in to make the conference a success. Everyone found their niche and contributed visibly or behind the scenes or both. A lot of time on everyone’s part was devoted to this endeavor. The session organizers and speakers and moderators did a great job. Last minute issues were resolved with aplomb. Everyone’s contribution is appreciated and should be recognized and everyone should be proud we made it happen.
