  The United States Mint Historian's Corner
The Historian's Corner strives to preserve our heritage by sharing pieces of our history through a body of primary source material from which the public can find new insight on the relationships among numismatics, art, design, and government—from the birth of our Nation’s coinage to the present day.
Gain access to an information resource that can be used to track the history of coinage in United States and in the future, conduct research on United States Mint programs and operations.
We hope the benefits to the numismatic hobby are numerous, and that the opportunity for research extends from an introductory or casual level of interest to the graduate and even post-graduate level of study.

  Lord Acton on the Historian   (Site not responding. Last check: )
What historians required was to be allowed to seek truth for its own sake, to operate freely by their own methods, independent of external authorities and without concern for the effects of their work.
Historians are trained to place actions and events in the context of time and place, considerations that are fatal to an absolute morality that is timeless and universal.
Acton's ideal of the historian as judge, as the upholder of the moral standard, is the most noble ideal ever proposed for the historian; and it is an ideal that has been rejected, perhaps with grudging respect, by all historians, including myself.

  Historian - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Although the term can be used to describe amateur and professional historians alike, it is now often reserved for people whose work is recognized in academia, particularly those who have acquired graduate degrees in the discipline.
Many of the historians of the past have been called upon to write histories either to furnish a king or a ruling class with a lineage, thereby offering it legitimacy, or to give a people a cultural heritage and sense of identity.
This meant that the works of these historians openly mixed oratory, poetry and literature in a way which is incompatible with the contemporary concern for impartiality and objectivity.

 Literary take on vampires gives 'Historian' bite - The Boston Globe
The Historian, By Elizabeth Kostova, Little, Brown, 642 pp., $25.95 No longer relegated to roaming crumbling castles and crypts, today's vampires seem like hipsters -- brooding sensualists forever torn between a thirst for blood and a love of the world, eternally cool.
Elizabeth Kostova's first novel, ''The Historian," however, looks back to Dracula as the reigning vampire, and instead of setting her labyrinthine novel in a series of gloomy nightclubs, Kostova returns us to ancient monasteries, tombs, and, most important, libraries.
Nevertheless, ''The Historian" is engrossing, and Kostova's depiction of the work of historians is strangely riveting.
