Ideas to follow up in the search for a historian
Would Gus Giebelhaus or Edward Ayers be able to provide us with possible names?
Some ideas from Charles Maland:
"I wonder if you might contact James Cobb at the University of Georgia, a former colleague of mine at Tennessee. He's a highly respected Southern historian, and he knows a lot of folks in the field."
Peter Rollins at Oklahoma State is also a person with many contacts among American historians. He edits FILM AND HISTORY, and he may
also have some suggestions."
