“Johns Adams Unbound” Online Site Support Notebook
Your state humanities council has a list of scholars who have experience with public programming, and many humanities councils have formal Speaker’s Bureaus. Check to see if there are scholars who specialize in Adams and/or the Revolutionary Period.
Contact the History Department of local universities, colleges, and community colleges.
The Organization of American Historians ( www.oah.org/activities/lectureship/2008/search.php ) lists the following historians with a specialty on Adams:
- John Ferling
- Barbara B. Oberg
If you have any problems contacting potential speakers, please e-mail the ALA Public Programs Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
