What happens when three historians encounter a mysterious historical source? This episode is the second installment in the series, "Three Professors and a Primary Source." This episode, "Authorship," examines the first (of six) interrogatory question from the Historian's Toolkit. Here, three history professors engage in a friendly and scholarly discussion about Robert Penn Warren, author of "New Dawn," a poem that appeared in the 1983 edition of John Hersey's famous text, HIROSHIMA. Episode 2 guides students through the critical process of identifying authorship. Thanks to Dr. Richard Hernandez, Dr. Gerry Prokopowicz, and Dr. Chad Ross for their participation in this exercise. Also, thanks to Dr. Chad Ross, Videographer Robert Passell, Ralph Scott, The Special Collections Library, the Department of History and the 2013-2014 TQP team at the College of Education, all at East Carolina University.
