Becoming Historians

Linda Gordon

University of Chicago Press

This chapter presents historian Linda Gordon's memoirs, which trace how she became interested in history. Gordon considers herself as being still in the process of becoming a historian. Her influences stemmed from larger world events than from teachers and other intellectuals. Gordon believes that everyone's life is imbedded in historical events and that the kind of historian she is today determines how she sees the history of her becoming a historian.
