This chapter presents historian James M. Banner Jr.'s memoirs, which trace how he became interested in history. Banner came from circumstances possessing a history that no family members considered to be of much interest. History was something his family possessed but not something it had lived. Banner believes that history came to him from outside his own origins. His introduction to history came in 1935 wartime dispatches from Europe and the Pacific.
