Proposing New Research Topics

Filed under: community,new project — Max @ 11:56 pm

New Topic Listing

There’s a new page for History Commons contributors, users, and friends. Check it out and see if any of the proposed new topics interests you. If you have an idea for something not on this list, post it here!


  1. Have some interest in getting Albarelli’s book and some of the other events (1977 hearings, etc.) in. Are we comfortable with TrineDay as a publisher? Has anyone else read ATM? Are there other books that would be useful? Also, have had some difficulty finding Hersh’s December ’74 to January ’75 NYT exposés in their entirety online. Not sure about my local library having them on microfiche.

    (Also,there are a few broken links on the resources page in the external section. Also would love to know if the Google News History thingy still works for anyone else. Possibly my browser (iPhone Safari).

  2. Thanks for posting, Kany. If you want to begin exploring Albarelli’s book, you’re more than welcome to do so. I wouldn’t object to books published by TrineDay by default, though they’ve published some material that I don’t accept as factual. I didn’t post the Albarelli book, I think Matt was the one who cited that one, so I can’t speak to its accuracy.OTOH, I have a great deal of faith in Hersh’s work. His NYT work should be online somewhere, if nowhere else than behind the paper’s paywall in its archives. Or perhaps on Highbeam, though my search of that facility doesn’t show anything by Hersh earlier than 1983.
