Members of Historians Against the War,
We sadly report the passing of Alan Dawley on Wednesday, March 13. Alan
was a founding member of HAW and a longtime member of its steering
committee. He played the leading role in drafting and organizing support
for the anti-war resolution that the American Historical Association
passed at its business meeting in January 2007 and ratified in a
membership referendum two months later.
A specialist in the social, political, and international history of the
United States, since 1970 Alan taught at the The College of New Jersey.
He was a model scholar, historian, colleague, and activist.
Alan planned to participate on two panels at our forthcoming conference
War And Its Discontents: Understanding Iraq And The U.S. Empire in
Atlanta, Georgia, April 11-13, 2008
(http://www.historiansagainstwar.org/hawconf/). Please consider joining
The following is a message from Alan's son Evan Dawley, also a historian:
The family wants you to know that while studying Spanish and meeting
with friends in the global justice movement in Mexico, Alan passed away
from sudden heart failure.
There will be a celebration of Alan's life and work, probably in June.
If you would like to receive information about or participate in that
ceremony, and to pass along your messages of condolence, please send an
e-mail to alandawleymemorial at gmail.com.
In lieu of sending flowers, please send donations in his memory to any
of the following organizations that Alan supported: Weaver's Way
Community Programs, 559 Carpenter Lane, Philadelphia, PA 19119; American
