Go to your local library and read…

My article! My first ever real academic publication is now out, in the Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society, vol. 113, no. 1 (2003). (Yes, it is backdated, don’t ask.) “General Artemas Ward: An American Revolutionary Remembered and Reinvented, 1800-1938” was the result of Professor Ulrich’s Spring 2001 seminar on the Artemas Ward House, its former occupants, artifacts, and objects. I took the more familiar route to paper-writing and found myself sucked in not by objects but by the 86 boxes of Ward family material available at the American Antiquarian Society. I rather enjoyed writing it and hope people find it interesting, although, as with most such things, if I had it to do all over again…

There is also an introduction written by Laurel Ulrich and another paper written in the seminar by my friend Justin Florence. Enjoy!

  1. I don’t think the Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society is available in an electronic edition at this time. 😦 The citation will eventually be in America: History and Life, but that won’t help you much. You’ll have to do the neo-Luddite thing and read the paper copy if you’re really interested!
