On Monday, April 23, 2018, the history community lost a friend and colleague when Aidan J. Smith, OAH Public History Manager, unexpectedly passed away. Aidan was a dedicated historian who worked tirelessly overseeing the OAH-NPS collaboration. His loss is being felt across the country and throughout our community.
Arrangements are still being finalized, but those who wish to do so can make donations to the Southern Poverty Law Center or the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation in his honor. Notes of condolence for his partner and family can be sent in care of the OAH national office.
