AHA Member Ty Seidule (Hamilton Coll.) was featured in a Stars and Stripes article by Jules Struck about his position on the Naming Commission to review and suggest new titles for Department of Defense property named after Confederates. The article highlighted Seidule’s southern upbringing and his efforts to correct the deceptive “Lost Cause” narrative of the Confederacy. “It’s not going to be enough to understand it; the policies must change,” Seidule said. “But the problem is, we’re not going to get enough Americans to agree to change the policies until we educate them about what the problem is and why it’s there.”
