AHA member and former National History Center director Dane Kennedy (George Washington Univ.) was featured in news coverage from NBC4 Washington and ABC7 News DC about the death of Queen Elizabeth II and the legacy she left behind. “Even though she only had symbolic and not real political power, it does stand as an anomaly in some respects to the trajectory of modern political systems,” Kennedy said. “And the fact she kept that monarchy alive for the 70 years she reigned and not just alive but popular is an extraordinary feat.”
