On the Cover

Howard R. Hollem’s 1942 photograph of a World War II turret lathe operator graces the cover of this special issue, on how historians use (or don’t use) technology in places ranging from the classroom to the archive. If the young machinist became a historian after the war, she would have accumulated plenty of experience working with advanced technology, which might have stood her well in the discipline.
