For The Federalist – Fall 1999
History Associates Incorporated was included in a March 11 article in the French newspaper Liberation, which described HAI’s services in researching information — using resources at NARA and elsewhere — about American corporate activity in Germany and occupied Europe during World War II, in the aftermath of a growing number of Holocaust-related lawsuits.
HAI President Philip Cantelon was guest co-editor of the Summer 1999 issue of The Public Historian, which commemorated the twentieth anniversary of the founding of the National Council on Public History. Contributing essays to the issue were Cantelon, HAI board member Arnita Jones, Senior Vice President Richard Hewlett, and consultant Jack Holl.
HAI President Philip Cantelon’s review of Joan Aron’s 1997 book, Licensed to Kill? The Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Shoreham Power Plant, was published in the March 1999 issue of The Journal of American History.
In May, HAI board member Arnita Jones began a five-year term as Executive Director of the American Historical Association. Before moving to Washington, she served as Executive Director of the Organization of American Historians for eleven years.
HAI consultant Landis Jones is writing the history of current re-engineering efforts of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
HAI worked with the National Institutes of Health to create an exhibit on Maryland and NIH’s medical work for the bicentennial celebration of the Maryland Medical and Chirurgical Society.
