As a tenured but non-salaried university chair, I operate my research projects as an independent nonprofit enterprise. There are significant overheads; research is expensive. Even if I stay at home instead of working in the great archives like The National Archives (Kew, Surrey) and the National Archives and Records Administration (College Park, Maryland). Downloading archival records (if I find any digitised and online) is often more expensive than travelling to the UK or USA and photographing them myself. So, if you can find a way to support my research, every penny will help. Guaranteed 100% of your donation will be used for historical or interdisciplinary research. To donate, just click on the tin cup above, or HERE. Various currencies gratefully accepted. If you need a receipt, just email me. Thank you so much.
