OAH Annual Report

Annual Reports from the Organization of American Historians include reports from the president, executive director, executive editor, and treasurer, updates from departments and programs within the organization, and recognition of OAH donors and volunteers.

If we have learned anything from the past few years, it might be the importance of innovation and adaptation. And that is exactly how the Organization of American Historians continues to thrive.
