H-US1918-45 Syllabus Bank


As one of the new editors for H-US1918-45, I'd like to share one of my major interest areas for expanding the discussions of the board. I teach a course on the time period, focusing on various aspects of the Roaring Twenties, the Depression/New Deal, and World War II, and would like to begin building a syllabus bank for H-US1918-45.

Thank you, From H-Net
