National History Center Appoints Administrative Officer
Wm. Roger Louis, Chair of the National History Center and the Kerr Professor of English History and Culture at the University of Texas at Austin, stated, “She is extraordinarily competent and efficient. She will bring to the Center a unique blend of skills and experience. A strong proponent of the Center since its founding, she has a thorough understanding of the hopes and needs of the historical community as well as what it will take to build a new organization in the nation’s capital.”
“The creation of a National History Center is a key initiative of the American Historical Association, as an effort to establish a more public presence for the historical profession,” stated Arnita Jones, Executive Director of the American Historical Association. “I look forward to continuing to work with Miriam Hauss in this important effort.”
The National History Center promotes research, teaching, and learning in all fields of history. It is dedicated to the study and teaching of history as well as to the advancement of historical knowledge in government, business, and the public at large. The Center was established to help historians reach out to broader audiences by providing the historical context necessary to better understand today’s events.
