[haw-info] HAW Notes 1/19/17: HAW contingent in NYC march; Marv Gettleman; links to recent articles of interest

For anyone in the New York City area planning to take part in the Women's March on Saturday, this is a reminder that there will be a HAW contingent in the march. It will meet at the southwest corner of 45th Street and 2nd Avenue at 11:30; look for the big "Historians Against the War" banner.

Two tributes to the late Marv Gettleman by HAW Steering Committee members have been posted on the HAW website, one by Van Gosse and one on behalf of the organization by Rusti Eisenberg.
