Comments on: Saddled up & ridin’ out today, yee-haw! http://www.historiann.com/2009/09/25/saddled-up-ridin-out-today-yee-haw/ History and sexual politics, 1492 to the present Sun, 28 Sep 2014 10:58:43 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.9.2 By: Historiann http://www.historiann.com/2009/09/25/saddled-up-ridin-out-today-yee-haw/comment-page-1/#comment-446772 Sun, 27 Sep 2009 13:30:03 +0000 http://www.historiann.com/?p=7596#comment-446772 The FREAC was a great time, friends–new faces, old friends, and a level of intellectual engagement that puts most conference sessions to shame. (I think this is probably because of the fact that it’s a regular date on most of our calendars–we know each other, and care about each other, so we’re probably more consciencious about being good colleagues.)

A session I self-indulgently organized on biography in early American history was a lot of fun–Eric Hinderaker talked about his new book, The Two Hendricks: Unraveling a Mohawk Mystery (Harvard, forthcoming); Jenny Pulsipher talked about her work on John Wompus, a 17th C Nipmuc man who left a relatively big footprint in the archives; and John Smolenski talked about his interest in Nassau, Landon Carter’s ‘body man.’ Some of our older colleagues talked about how interesting it is to see biographies of previously unknown people–they said, “in the past, no one would ever have thought to write a biography of an unknown person.” All very smart stuff, and fun to talk about!

Every year we’d have a cleanup day and every ranger would work on cleaning up after the summer season. My boss called and we commenced to clear out the old horse stalls at Beaver Creek, which were full of stuff laced with cobwebs.  [...]

I’m looking forward to the reports, but spent more-time-than-I-should-have yesterday ogling the images. They were very quick to get photos up; most haven’t been properly cleaned yet!

Enjoy the meeting!

Have fun at the Consortium!

What do I dream of finding in an attic? I think I’d have to go with a cache of vintage Balenciaga dresses — my size, of course!
