Paul Robinson

University of Chicago Press

This chapter presents historian Paul Robinson's memoirs, which trace how he became interested in history. Robinson, who became deeply interested in politics during the 1948 election, loved music and believes that listening to his records and later playing some of the pieces in the local youth orchestra introduced him to a distinctly historical way of thinking. History provided him with an accommodating home for his labors and its ecumenical spirit has indulged his rather idiosyncratic passions.

Keywords:   historian, memoirs, Paul Robinson, politics, 1948 election, music, historical thinking
