[haw-info] HAW at end of '08, just before the AHA
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.
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.
All the best for the new year,
