PNLHA Washington member Aaron Goings has had a busy publishing period.

Last year his article “Women, Wobblies, and the ‘War of Grays Harbor’ appeared in Montana, “The Magazine of Western History.” In 2013 he co-authored a book with Gary Kaunonen called Community in Conflict: A Working-Class History of the 1913-14 Michigan Copper Strike and the Italian Hall Tragedy (East Lansing: Michigan State University Press, 2013).

Both works include a generous collection of historic photographs, including the image at left from the Montana article.

Aaron has now returned to his job as assistant professor of history at Saint Martin’s University in Lacey, WA, after teaching as a Fulbright Scholar in Finland. Welcome back to the PNLHA, Aaron!
