The focus of this issue in on the upcoming CFH Fall 2002 Meeting, to
be heldin the garden spot of the historic Northwest Territories, Huntington
IN. Dwight Brautigam (email@example.com) willbe handling local
arrangements, incompetently seconded by his colleagues. His shameless
promotional message appearsbelow. Now you may be wondering about
the draw of Huntington, other than the dynamic and fruitful interchangeof
views and opinions with your wonderful CFH compatriots. To alleviate
concerns that you might be forced to spend the entire conferenceactually
engaged in serious conversation with fellow historians, we havecreated a
web site which will give you some tantalizinginsights into local attractions.
This page may beviewed at www.huntington.edu/cfh/hyperfun.htmand
will be frequently updated in a probably vain attempt to lure theunwary
back to see if anything of value has been posted. Check it out (and aren't you
ashamed that you don't have anything better to do?).
On a more serious note, Jay Green (firstname.lastname@example.org) andTom
Mach (email@example.com)have been hard at work developing a
significantly different sort of program.The final calls for papers and
descriptions of the two(Yes! Two!) conferences we will be holding in the fall
of 2002 have been circulated to our eMail list, arepublished in full below, and
can be found on the CFH web site atwww.huntington.edu/cfh. PLEASE
give these announcements your full consideration and letJay and Tom know
about your willingness to participate.
The other item that you should given immediate notice to is the annual
CFH Breakfast session at the January 2002 meetingof the American
Historical Association. There is a notice of this below as well.
