December 2021

Greetings to all Historians and wannabes. I want to thank all who attended my class at the Fall Conference. I hope that you, at least, have a basic understanding of how to assemble a history book.

Just a reminder: There are only TWO (2) judging categories- One-year History Book and One-year Narrative. There is no “open book” or “scrapbook”. However, By National standards, you may assemble your One-year History Book in a regulation scrapbook, but it MUST be titled “One Year’s History Book”.

I will send to anyone that requests, the complete instruction course via email. I am in the process of assembling an email list of all post commanders in the districts to pass along this fantastic course to their historians.

If you email me, please put in the subject line ‘post historian’ so that I don’t delete your email.

I am still looking for 2 volunteers to assist me in judging books at Department Convention in June. With any luck, it should take no more than 2-3 hours, depending on how many are submitted. The judging area will be in Convention Department Headquarters.

Any questions, please feel free to call or email me.

In closing, I would like to wish you and yours a very Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year.

Philip r. Crouthamel
