2005 Annual Meeting
Public Historians and the Culture and Meaning of Region
April 14-17, 2005
Kansas City, Missouri
Please join us at our 2005 Annual Conference to be held at the Muehlebach Hotel in Kansas City, Missouri. Originally constructed by the Muehlebach family, it was completed in 1915. The Presidential suite was once used by President Truman as a campaign headquarters and later, throughout his Vice Presidency and Presidency, served as the command center for his presidential visits. In 1996 the Muehlebach Hotel came under management of the Marriott Hotel. Part of the old Muehlebach Hotel was replaced with modern hotel facilities, but the Muehlebach Tower still stands in remembrance of a historic bygone age.
The 2005 program seeks to explore the ways in which public history and public historians investigate, collect, present, and preserve regional culture and history. We’re sorry the deadline for the calls for papers has passed.
