This site, once a blog 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 (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.
