[haw-info] Rosalyn Baxandall, 1939 - 2015
To members and friends of Historians Against the War,
It is with great sadness that we share with you the passing on Tuesday, October 13 of Ros Baxandall. As an active member of the HAW steering committee she made numerous important contributions to our work. She was an especially active source of suggestions for the "recent articles of interest" feature of many of our messages to our email list. Until very recently, she had been very active in the work around the HAW resolution "Protecting the Right to Education in the Occupied Palestinian Territories" that we will present at the 2016 AHA. However, she is best known for the significant contributions she made to the historical profession, particularly in the areas of women's and gender history, and to social justice causes. For more information on her remarkable career, see the New York Times obituary, "RosalynBaxandall, Feminist Historian and Activist, Dies at 76," and a newly updated Wikipedia page.
We mourn her passing and we celebrate her life!
Margaret Power and Jim O'Brien for the HAW Steering Committee
