Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History

From: "Whitney Moses" moses@gilderlehrman.org

I thought your colleagues and members might be interested in learning about the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. The Institute's mission is to promote the study and love of American history, and we provide an array of resources for students, teachers, scholars and the general public.

I'd like to inform you about some of our programs ... Many such programs and initiatives are free to educators and scholars, including:

* Summer Seminars and other professional development opportunities for teachers and college professors;

* History Now, a quarterly, online journal featuring articles by historians, lesson plans, and interactive features;

* Lectures, symposia, conferences and traveling exhibitions on American history;

* A number of publications, including "Early American Abolitionists: A Collection of Anti-Slavery Writings 1760-1820" which is available free of charge to history teachers, professors and institutional libraries. To order a copy, educators and librarians should email name, title, school or library and address;

* Awards including the History Teacher of Year; and

* Research fellowships for scholars and journalists to work in history archives.

Please feel free to contact me with questions or comments.

Many thanks.
