Ruth Feldstein Named Organization of American Historians Distinguished Lecturer

The Organization of American Historians appointed 78 new speakers to its prestigious Distinguished Lectureship Program earlier this month.

These scholars, who are affiliated with some of the nation's top universities, join more than 400 other OAH Distinguished Lecturers who speak to audiences across the country each year and are widely sought for appearances at museums, libraries, universities, community centers, churches and synagogues, and other venues.

OAH Distinguished Lecturers promote understanding and appreciation of all facets of U.S. history from the 1600s through the present, which is an essential component of the organization's mission.

According to Katherine M. Finley, the OAH's executive director, the speaking fees earned by the speakers are an important part of the organization's non-dues revenue stream. "We thank these historians for their service to the organization and for helping advance our mission," she said. "And we congratulate them on achieving this high honor."
