[haw-info] HAW at end of '08, just before the AHA

To Historians Against the War members and friends:

We haven't sent out a fund appeal for quite a while, but the truth is that our treasury is about bare.  Our national conference in Atlanta last April was a big success in terms of substance and atmosphere, but not financially.  Despite careful spending, most of our previous surplus is now gone.  We'll send out an appeal after a new Steering Committee is elected in January, but since many people make their contributions around the holiday time, this is a belated request for anyone who feels so moved to send something to HAW.  The easiest way is via PayPal, at http://www.historiansagainstwar.org/donations.html.  Another way is to send a check made out to Historians Against the War to the treasurer, Van Gosse, 314 West Orange St., Lancaster, PA 17603.  Thanks for any help.  In the interest of truth-in-soliciting, donations to HAW are not tax-deductible.

For those coming to the AHA convention in New York, here is a reminder of the HAW events scheduled for Saturday, January 3.  One of the events is new:  the book signing by Carl Mirra, a HAW Steering Committee member.

11:30 - 2:30  Literature table (shared with Radical History Review) in the area of the New York Hilton reserved for nonprofit groups, probably near the convention registration area

1:30  Book signing for Carl Mirra's book Soldiers and Citizens: An Oral History of Operation Iraqi Freedom from the Battlefield to the Pentagon, Palgrave Booth #267 in the Book Exhibit Hall.

2:30 - 4:30  Roundtable:  "The Bush-Cheney Years":  In the Empire Ballroom East of the Sheraton New York, 7th Ave. and 53rd St.  Speakers are Alice Kessler-Harris, David Montgomery, Vijay Prashad, Ellen Schrecker, and Barbara Weinstein.

4:30 - 5:30   Open meeting and discussion for HAW members and friends, in the same room as the roundtable:  "One Faltering Economy and Two Wars: What Can Historians Contribute?

6:00 - 8:00  Reception co-sponsored by the Peace History Society and HAW, in the Sutton Center, second floor of the Hilton

All the best for the new year,

Jim O'Brien
for HAW
