[haw-info] HAW Notes 2/9/17: Reminder of feedback request; links to recent articles of interest

A Reminder: For those who didn't see Margaret Power's February 7 message on behalf of the Steering Committee of Historians Against the War, it is posted on the HAW blog at http://blog.historiansagainstwar.org. It presents a proposed broadening of HAW's mission that is under discussion in the Steering Committee and asks for feedback from members and friends of HAW.

Responses should either be sent to Margaret Power (power@iit.edu) or posted on HAW's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/2216182861). Thanks for taking the time to read the proposal and contribute your opinion on it.
