Popular Culture at the AHA meeting in Boston,
        the night of 6 January

Preliminary note:
Each year, PCA has a session at the annual meeting
of the American Historical Association and this year
is no exception.  In a tribute to the SPORTS-minded
of the profession, we have the following panel planned.
(See page 61 of the official program.)  Many popular
culture enthusiasts--esp. those in the New England
Area--will recognize the name of Judy Hakola; she is
a past-President of our regional association and
one of the nicest people we know...People from the
Southwest may recognize  Harris J. Elder, a former
Director of the OSU Filmathon for many years and
a Bartlesville, Oklahoma native..and now a New England

The session below on the Red Sox and Fenway Park
should be a wonderful and recreative experience for
those at AHA and local folks.  Registration is not
