The Historians


Dr. Donna McBride

This semester we’re launching a new monthly group, The Historians, which during its first year will explore the intersection of politics, war, and leadership in history books recognized by historians as the best in their discipline.  Under the expert guidance of Dr. Donna McBride, who has taught history for almost forty years at both the secondary and university levels, The Historians will be reading and discussing one book per month. If history is your passion, your interest, or the discipline you want to know better, this group is designed for you.
