Abstract

JOURNAL OF THE EARLY REPUBLIC (Fall 2014) of methods, such as database management, from careers unrelated to history. The sense of fun they share in their works is manifest. The authors' works were created outside of academia, and interactions with academia remain sparse. They are not well represented in peer-reviewed journals, nor are they available at the usual archives. Some researchers may be unaware of these energized antiquarians, though works not incorporating their findings risk commission of errors of omission and misinterpretation of primary sources. I believe that a better state of mutual recognition and synergy can be achievable between the new breed of antiquarians, like Wiggin, and the academy. There is much to be gained by getting beyond stereotypes and joining forces in conveying valid historical insights to the broadest possible audience. Sa m uel A. Form an is a physician and educator associated with the Harvard University School of Public Health. He is the author of Dr. Joseph Warren: The Boston Tea Party, Bunker Hill, and the Birth of American Liberty (Gretna, LA, 2012), and company surgeon of the Lexington Minute Men historical re-enactors. ´ ´ Sons of the Father: George Washington and His Proteges.
