I am an editor at the German Historical Institute Washington DC, and I occasionally teach history at George Mason University.

The blog on this site, once called Stoneman’s Corner, has seen various iterations. I have removed some old posts along the way, but also added some remnants from earlier blogs, History Survey (2007), Clio and Me (2008–12), and Language for You (2007–10). I have set the dates of such posts to when they first appeared on the other sites and marked them as such.

Wondering if you know me from another time and place? I grew up in New Hampshire and attended Dartmouth College. I did a four-year stint in the U.S. Army (field artillery) and was stationed in Wertheim, Germany. I also spent time in Augsburg and Freiburg i.Br., but I’ve called Washington, DC, home for a long time now.
