Using America’s obsession with Washington’s hair as his window, historian Keith Beutler examines how “physicality,” or the use of the material objects, was the most important way early Americans (1790-1840)–museum founders, African Americans, evangelicals, and school teachers– remembered the nation’s founding. Beutler is the author of George Washington’s Hair: How Early Americans Remembered the Founders (University of Virginia Press, 2021).
