TL;DR -- We continue our look at U.S. history by way of the Heads of Harvard with a look at the first female Head. Drew Gilpin Faust was from Virginia and a Historian of the Civil War.
---Our look at the Heads of Harvard (Wikipedia) has been quite useful with only a cursory look. We will be taking this theme as a regular meme while we continue the review of the U.S. through time. Initially, the interests were several, but we have started with this look:
- History of Harvard (ours);
- History of the Presidency (Harvard);
- graduates of Harvard (list initiated by Hoar); and
- Harvard in the long history of the U.S.
Her biography at Harvard is the index (get direct link) of the archive.org collection. She was a Historian of the Civil War and from Virginia, a southern state. As well as looking at her accomplishments, we will look at the family history for connections to New England, north.
