💔 Here is a sketch of the drawn by Charles Schulz on a trip to Paris in 1978. Jean Schulz (2011): “We saw Notre Dame up close, inside and out, but Sparky chose this view from the apartment, which was on the left bank on Rue Maître Albert, for his drawing.”

I'm the former Levi Strauss & Co. Historian. Company records were destroyed in 1906 but NARA had an 1876 patent case with vital information about the invention of jeans which I used in my Levi biography, published in 2016. Thanks!

Very sad to report the passing of Bob Chandler: Western historian, Wells Fargo historian, friend, My Demented Colleague, and a mainstay of E Clampus Vitus, the historical drinking society.

I honor the women of the Arequipa Tuberculosis Sanatorium today, which treated women exclusively: the society ladies who funded it, the women doctors and nurses, and the patients who worked to cure themselves.

Nope. Historians speak constantly to & with the public. Political/diplomatic/military history are vital subfields in the discipline & are taught routinely. This is a caricature of the historical profession. It's tired. It doesn't reflect reality.
