I teach the US Survey to 1865, The History of American Political Parties 1787-present, US Constitutional HIstory 1787-present, and The History of American Presidential Elections 1788-present. My principal research interests have been in New Mexico politics in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. My current research project is a study of 19th Century Presidential Campaign Songs and their role in the several campaigns.
I have served in a variety of scholarly organizations in a variety of positions. I chaired the Membership Committee of the OAH, the Site Location Committee of the WHA, served as President Elect, and President of the Southwestern Hstorical Association an=mong other responsibilities. I am a life member of the AHA, OAH, WHA, SHA, and New Mexico Historical Association.
