AHA Expresses Alarm at University Press of Kansas Financial Cuts (February 2021)

The AHA sent a letter to the Board of Trustees of the University Press of Kansas expressing alarm about financial cuts and the press's possible elimination. The letter notes that "few presses have done so much to burnish their home institution's reputation, to advance the careers of promising scholars, and to make vital contributions to historical knowledge as the University Press of Kansas," and that its demise "would be an incalculable loss for the historical discipline and for generations of American historians yet to come."
