The prose history of American Studies at the University of Texas at Austin was written by Joshua Abraham Kopin, based in part on writings by Dr. Jeffrey Meikle and Dr. William Stott, whose reminiscence of the department in its early years can be read here. Research featured in this piece, including interviews with Dr. Bob Abzug, Dr. Cary Cordova, Dr. Randolph Lewis, Dr. Jeffrey Meikle, and Dr. Mark Smith, was conducted by Carrie Andersen, Nicholas Bloom, Joshua Abraham Kopin, Dr. Steven Hoelscher, and James Cole Wilson, with research assistance from Myriam Jimenez. This website was designed by Joshua Abraham Kopin and James Cole Wilson and the site editor was Dr. Steven Hoelscher. We would especially like to thank the staff of the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History at the University of Texas at Austin for generous research support.
