“The Accidental Federal Historian, Or How I Stumbled into a Great Career”
Former Historian, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission
I will discuss my career as a staff member at the National Archives and especially as historian of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission for 31 years. I will draw on my experiences and observations to suggest that there are interesting and honorable jobs for historians in non-academic settings.
First and second year History graduate students are required to attend so plan to make the History Workshop a regular part of your Tuesday activities.
