D.A. Jamison is a student of life and for the purposes of this column, a student of history. He is actually paid to teach U.S. History, but is still secretly a student and continues to burn the midnight oil digging up the past from dust covered history texts. He now knows enough about the history of the United States to teach it to students of all ages. He also knows just enough about our nation’s history to be dangerous to those who would rather leave the past buried in cobwebs and dust.
As a student of life, he has observed that historical events did not occur within a vacuum or in isolated instances of specific endeavors, although the sharing of history may require a focus upon very specific historical parameters (the exciting vs. the mundane). By the same token, the study and teaching of history does not occur in a clean room. It is often influenced by the frame of mind of the participants. One obvious example occurs when contemporary cultural or moral standards are imposed upon ancient peoples.
Jamison is not only capable of teaching, but has written a number of articles representing his broad interest in the history of many peoples. But primarily, he is still learning new things about old stuff and is willing to share what he understands.
