Abstract

From the editor Tamara Gaskell S years ago now, Bill Pencak and I sat down to talk about how everal we might, as editors of Pennsylvania History and the Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography, work together on a joint issue of our journals that would serve to introduce our respective members and subscribers to our sister state history journal and promote a fruitful partnership between the state's professional organization of historians with an interest in Pennsylvania history and the largest special collections research library housing the documentary record of our commonwealth and region. These two different but complementary organizations, it seemed to us, had much to offer one another--and to each other's members. As we began to discuss the focus of such a joint enterprise, Bill quickly suggested that we focus on the teaching of Pennsylvania history--a topic that both organizations are strongly committed to promoting and facilitating and that also defined Bill's daily life and to which he was devoted. This special issue is the result of that early conversation. Sadly, Bill did not live to see the fruits of our collaboration. This issue is dedicated to his memory. pennsylvania magazine of history and biography, vol.
