NCPH-NPS Letters of Interest due 10/15

Via our cooperative agreement with the National Park Service, the National Council on Public History seeks a qualified historian (or team of historians) to conduct a Historic Resource Study Addendum on African American History at Paterson Great Falls Historical Park. The initial HRS was completed in 2019 and documented and analyzed Paterson’s history from the establishment of the Society for Establishing Useful Manufactures (S.U.M) in the late 18th century through the decline of manufacturing and the impact of deindustrialization in the second half of the 20th century. Please read the full narrative in PDF format for the description of the project’s scope of work and timeline, as well as instructions for submitting your letter of interest and professional writing sample. Letters of interest are due October 15, 2023.
