Anna's paper on C. C. Andrews appears in the November 2002 issue (vol. 36 no. 1) of The History Teacher, the quarterly journal of The Society for History Education. The Society is an affiliate of the American Historical Association. Instructions for purchasing this issue may be found at their web site.
The Andrews paper was also to have been reprinted in an issue of Minnesota History. Because of budget cuts at the Historical Society, this has been indefinitely postponed.
