Becoming Historians

David A. Hollinger

University of Chicago Press

This chapter presents historian David A. Hollinger's memoirs, which trace how he became interested in history. Hollinger became interested in history after reading about the Nez Indians. But what engaged him the most after he became a historian was the tension between cosmopolitan and provincial impulses that assign significance to distinctions between human beings based on race, ethnicity, religion, location, and nationality. Hollinger is happy to have become a historian under the fortunate circumstances of the 1960s.

Keywords:   historian, memoirs, David A. Hollinger, Nez Indians, race, ethnicity, nationality, human beings
