There are many ways to be a historian – and on this week’s PreserveCast we’re exploring the world of historians for hire – contract historians who do work to help organizations, corporations, agencies and law firms dig deep into history when the stakes are high.
During his time at History Associates Incorporated, Scott Vierick has traveled from the Colorado mountains to the Florida Everglades, and from the National Archives to frozen Civil War Battlefields. As a historian and project manager with the company, he works with clients and stakeholders to produce engaging historical content for museum exhibits, smartphone apps, and websites.
