JACQUELINE JONESwas born in Christiana, Delaware, a small town of 400 people in the northern part of the state. The local public school was desegregated in 1955, when she was a third-grader.

She attended the University of Delaware in nearby Newark, and went on to graduate school at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she received

PETER H. WOODwas born in St. Louis (before the famous arch was built). He recalls seeing Jackie Robinson play against the Cardinals, visiting the Court House where the Dred Scott case originated, and traveling up the Mississippi to Hannibal, birthplace of Mark Twain. Summer work on the northern Great Lakes aroused his interest in Native American cultures, past and present. He studied at Harvard and at Oxford, where he was a Rhodes Scholar. His pioneering book,Black Majority,concerning slavery in colonial South Carolina, won the Beveridge Prize of the American Historical Association. Since 1975, he has taught early American history at Duke University, where he also coached the women's lacrosse club for three years. The topics of his articles range from the French explorer LaSalle to Gerald Ford's pardon of Richard Nixon. He is the co-author ofWinslow Homer's Images of Blacks and Natives and Newcomers,a book about early North Carolina. In 1989 he co-editedPowhatan's Mantle: Indians in the Colonial Southeast.His demographic essay in that volume provided the first clear picture of population change in the 18th-Century South. Dr. Wood has served on the boards of the Highlander Center, Harvard University, Houston's Rothko Chapel, the Menil Foundation, and the Institute of Early American History and Culture in Williamsburg. He is married to colonial historian Elizabeth Fenn; his varied interests include archaeology, documentary film, and growing gourds. He keeps a baseball bat used by Ted Williams beside his desk.

In addition to his teaching experience, he also served as "Head Maid" of a conference center near Lake Tahoe. He lives with his wife and two sons in Syracuse, New York, where his greatest challenge — and delight — is doing the bulk of childcare while commuting sixty miles to Cornell. An avid bicyclist, runner, and cross-country skier, he earned his B.A. from Stanford University in 1980 and Ph.D. from Duke University in 1990. He became a historian in order to figure  more >>
