About the Author
The Concord Review, Inc., was founded as a nonprofit corporation in Massachusetts in March 1987 to recognize and to publish exemplary history essays by high school students in the English-speaking world. More than 1,000 history research papers (average 6,000 words, with endnotes and bibliography) have been published from secondary student authors in forty-six states and thirty-eight other countries. The Concord Review remains the only quarterly journal in the world to publish the academic work of secondary students. Many of our authors have sent reprints of their papers with their college application materials, and they have gone on to Brown (25), Chicago (20), Columbia (21), Cornell (16), Dartmouth (20), Harvard (120), Oxford (13), Pennsylvania (23), Princeton (63), Stanford (38), Yale (98), and a number of other fine institutions, including Amherst, Berkeley, Bryn Mawr, Caltech, Cambridge, Chicago, McGill, Middlebury, MIT, Reed, Smith, Trinity, Tufts, Virginia, Wellesley, Wesleyan, and Williams. We have sent such exemplary history essays to subscribers (students, teachers and librarians) in forty-two states and thirty-eight other countries (Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Cyprus, England, France, Greece, Holland, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Madagascar, Malaysia, Mexico, Nepal, New Guinea, New Zealand, Paraguay, Philippines, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Turkey, Venezuela and Wales). Schools in Bangkok, California, Connecticut, Georgia, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Singapore, Texas, Vermont and Virginia have had class sets of the Review, and teachers are using these essays as examples of good historical writing. One girls' school in Monterey, California has had 80 subscriptions for their history students, Singapore American School now has 125 subscriptions, and Bangkok Patana School in Thailand has had a class set for their students of history.
