About the Author:

John F. McClymer is professor of history at Assumption College in Worcester, Massachusetts, where he has taught for more than three decades. He did his undergraduate work at Fordham College and his MA and PhD at SUNY at Stony Brook. He is the author of seven books – most recently The Birth of Modern America, 1919-1939 (Brandywine Press, 2005) – and scores of articles and book chapters, several of which deal with teaching and with using the Internet. He is also co-editor of H-Ethnic and a member of H-Net's Teaching Committee. He is the recipient of numerous fellowships and grants. Currently he is working with the Worcester Public Schools, the American Antiquarian Society, and Old Sturbridge Village on two major initiatives. One, to create online resources for high school teachers on antebellum America, is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The other is a professional development program funded by the Department of Education under a Teaching American History grant. Two projects he directed or co-directed have been cited by EDSITEment as exemplary humanities web sites.
