This blog used to be called Stoneman’s Corner, but it has become more professional web presence than personal soap box.

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? I grew up in New Hampshire and attended Dartmouth. 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.
