92 Years Old and Still Doing History? It's the Story of Bernard WeisbergerHistorians/History
tags: Bernard Weisberger
Bernard Weisberger turned nine-two recently. For generations of students and readers, he's known for making history accessible, first as a college professor, later as an author of popular history books, collaborator with Bill Moyers, and finally as the author of a column in American Heritage.
In honor of his many contributions to the understanding of history HNN asked several of his former students and colleagues to provide their reminiscences in a kind of informal electronic festschrift. It was the idea of Joan Jacobs Brumberg.
We are calling the series, "In Honor of Bernard Weisberger." This is the second time we have honored Bernard Weisberger. In 2006 Bonnie Goodman provided a comprehensive profile in our History Doyens series.
