I am a Professor of History at Suffolk University in Boston, and also teach in the Harvard Extension School. My main interest in teaching and writing is American history. My wife and I live in East Boston. In addition to being president of the Colonial Society of Massachusetts, I chair Revolution 250, a consortium of organizations planning commemorations of the Revolution's 250th anniversaries, am a life-trustee of the USS CONSTITUTION Museum, and am involved with other history organizations.
Bradley Jay from WBZ and I talk about some of Boston's inventors. Why has Boston been such an epicenter for innovation?
