Episode 97: In Search of George Washington's Hair The Way of Improvement Leads Home: American History, Religion, Politics, and Academic life.

    • Society & Culture

Using America's obsession with Washington's hair as his window, historian Keith Beutler examines how "physicality," or the use of the material objects, was the most important way early Americans (1790-1840)--museum founders, African Amerians, evangelicals, and school teachers-- remembered the nation's founding. Beutler is the author of George Washington's Hair: How Early Americans Remembered the Founders (University of Virginia Press, 2021).
