Keynote speaker Howard Zinn at HAW's first national conference
Howard Zinn died on January 27, 2010, of a heart attack while visiting in California. He was 87. Howard was a near-icon among anti-war historians, and HAW was proud to have him as a keynote speaker at our first national conference, in Austin, Texas in February 2006. We join his legion of friends and admirers worldwide who will miss his eloquent and principled voice.
