Consortium Forming to Keep The Concord Review in Business

Historians in the News

The founder of The Concord Review is turning to private schools and other donors to keep the renowned history journal for student papers afloat after its primary sponsor pulled its funding. And a growing number of benefactors are accepting his invitation to join a consortium he has set up to ensure the journal’s survival.

Ten private organizations and schools have already pledged $5,000 each for their place in the consortium announced last month, which will set policy for the journal and guide its direction, including the selection of a successor to the founding editor when he retires in 2010. Mr. Fitzhugh is also recruiting public school representatives.
