Dr. Lily Guerra (pictured here as a youngster) provides a compelling answer to this question in the most recent edition of the American Historical Association’s Perspectives.  Dr. Guerra responds to an earlier article by AHA President Mary Beth Norton entitled “Why Are You a Historian?”  After a meeting with UF’s chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, the history honor society, Dr. Guerra was inspired to write about her own experiences growing up in Kansas as the child of Cuban expatriates and how that influenced her decision to practice history.
