Institute of History, Archaeology, and Education
PO Box 41
Purchase, NY 10577

I am honored to be one of the historians, whom Dr. Feinman asked to
participate in this program. Since the program is open to the public, I
would like to take this opportunity to extend an invitation to all of
the list members to attend. If you can not attend, please know that you
were wanted. On a more personal note, I would love to see and meet the
fine folks with whom I have been corresponding through these lists for
so many years. Additionally, I should add that speaking to large
audiences does not scare me, but speaking to a room full of empty room
does. So I hope to see you in two weeks at the Saratoga Springs
Visitors’ Center.
