Penn State

John Craig Hammond - Associate Professor of History, Penn State New Kensington

Book Title: William Cooper's Town: Power and Persuasion on the Frontier of the Early American Republic

Author: Alan Taylor

Book Description:

In 1998 I read Alan Taylor's William Cooper's Town. This book convinced a young physicist from Temple University to pursue a Ph.D in American history. In 2008, I was fortunate enough to return to Pennsylvania as a professor at Penn State New Kensington. As a native Pennsylvanian, as a graduate of Temple University, and as the spouse of a Penn State graduate, it is an honor and a privilege to serve the good people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as a history professor at Penn State, Pennsylvania's land grant university. Alan Taylor's William Cooper's Town made that possible.
