Had a nice chat this weekend in D.C. with this historian and author.
Glad you were able to meet and talk with Keith Grant. I met him this summer while doing research in Nova Scotia. He's doing great work and is incredibly kind and generous, too.
Best of luck with the new semester, and thanks, as always, for the tireless blogging.

Keith is one the good guys.
It was good to see you at AHA, Chris. You gave a great paper. Nice work.
