Alan Dawley

Historian Alan Dawley, College of New Jersey, died suddenly from heart failure while in Mexico recently studying Spanish and meeting with friends in the global justice movement. A widely read and admired U.S. historian, Dawley's most recent book set the progressive movement in a global context. His works include:




Class and Community: The Industrial Revolution in Lynn (Harvard University Press, 1976; Winner of the Bancroft Prize)

He is remembered here and here. His home page is here.

In lieu of sending flowers, the family asks that donations in his memory be sent to any of the following organizations that Alan supported:

Weaver's Way Community Programs: send checks in honor of Alan to 559 Carpenter Lane, Philadelphia, PA 19119;

American College of Nurse Midwives Foundation; when you donate, you can indicate that the donation is in honor of Alan.

Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation; when you donate, you can indicate that the donation is in honor of Alan.
A celebration of Alan Dawley's life and work is planned for June. To participate or send a remembrance, contact information is available here.
