Second Series, No. 47, Fall 2015

•   In Memoriam: Richard G. Hewlett
As a federal historian, he recognized the importance of organizing public historians to promote the effectiveness of their work.

•  ”Writing Comparative History: A Transatlantic Partnership,” John C. Lonnquest and Matthew T. Pearcy
In May 2004, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and its Dutch counterpart, the Rijkswaterstaat, signed a memorandum of agreement to promote bilateral collaboration in research, development, testing, and evaluation—all directed at leveraging centuries of expertise and improving the management of water resources in both countries. The two agencies determined to commission a comparative history to explore the geographical, cultural, political, and technical factors that shaped water resource management problems and policies in the United States and the Netherlands. But designing a comparative history was not an easy task.

•  President’s Message, Terrance Rucker

•  Editor’s Note, Benjamin Guterman

•  The Business of History, Gregory J. Martin
“Without this new approach to treating history programs as you might a business, history professionals and resource managers will continue to talk past each other. . . . As history professionals, we need to deploy an increasing body of research and analysis to bolster our arguments that a dedicated history office is actually good business practice.”

•  Office Profile: The Arlington National Cemetery History Office, Christopher A. Warren
“the new ANC leadership; identified, conserved, and secured items of historical significance; created a historical research collection after assessing thousands of linear feet of documentary material; and created a fully functioning Army history office responsive to the needs of the general public and the local command.”

•  History Professional: An Interview with Donald A. Carter
[Forging the Shield is] a history of the U.S. Army rather than a comprehensive study of the Cold War in Europe. However, I think . . . that the presence of the Americans, complete with the logistical infrastructure, raised the stakes of any proposed Soviet incursion to the point where potential losses were unacceptable.”

•  NDC Not Yet “Releasing All It Can,” Nate Jones
“While the NDC has not yet ended “pass/fail review,” soon after the April meeting, the Center took the important step of listing the titles of record series processed for declassification . . . on its website.. . . it is heartening to see one of President Obama’s most important transparency initiatives continue to improve.”

•   From the Archives: Nomination of a New Archivist, Chas Downs
“One of the first crises that faced NARA was the appointment of a new Archivist of the United States after the resignation of Dr. Robert Warner.”

•   Newly Declassified Records
“President Barack Obama presented the documents concerning Brazil in these series to Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff earlier this year.”

•   Oral History: Marine Corps Air Station El Toro, Fred Allison
“The interview project is part of the Great Park History Program, which aims to honor the men and women who served at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) El Toro, near Irvine, California, from 1942 to 1999, and to document the transition from Marine Corps air station to the Orange County Great Park.”
