Letters to the Editor

On Inclusivity at the AHA

Alfred Elkins, February 2015

To the Editor:

A few issues ago, I had a letter printed in Perspectives on History (April 2014). I pointed out that the American Historical Association focused mainly on college professors and other historical professionals, with no input by independent scholars, public historians, businesspeople, and others.

This has changed, and I thank you for it. In the September 2014 issue, a notice by Perspectives on History requested “essays, letters, and ideas.” A notice welcoming letters to the editor, with submission guidelines, was also printed.

Congratulations on expanding your horizons to the general readership of Perspectives on History. It is a welcome change.
