Some of you are familiar with Peter Wosh’s excellent history of the American Bible Society, Spreading the Word: The Bible Business in Nineteenth-Century America (Cornell, 1994). I relied heavily on Wosh’s book in my The Bible Cause: A History of the American Bible Society (Oxford, 2016).
Wosh recently retired from his post as Director of the Archives and Public History Program at New York University. If his Facebook page is any indication, he is spending a lot of time exploring the historical landscape in his home state of New Jersey and enjoying his New York Mets season tickets.
Today Wosh posted a picture of himself at Citibank Field. It was Mets helmet day! (Posted here with his permission).
When I saw this pic I had to respond. As you can see, my childhood Mets helmet is way to small for my head.
American Bible Society historians stick together. Let’s Go Mets.
