Remembering Alfred Young

In case you have not heard, early American social historian Alfred Young has passed away at the age of 87.  I never met Young, but I learned a lot from his work, especially The Shoemaker and the Tea Party: Memory and the American Revolution.  Here are some reflections on his life and career:


Benjamin Carp

David Waldstreicher

J.L. Bell

Greg Nobles

Wayne Bodle

It has been a sad several months for the historical profession.  We have lost Eugene Genovese, Eric Hobsbawm, Henry May, Bertram Wyatt-Brown, and now Young.

Over at the blog of The Historical Society, Randall Stephens has a reflection on Wyatt-Brown.
