hanbury-chairMy name is Dallas Hanbury and I graduated on August 6, 2016 with a PhD in Public History from Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU). In August 2012 I graduated from MTSU with my Masters in History with an emphasis in Public History (focusing on archives). As an undergraduate, my interest in archives  drew me to Public History. Accordingly, I chose to pursue advanced degrees in the field. Although history always interested me, I did not become aware of Public History until my junior year of college. Now that I have spent six years immersed in learning the theory of and practicing Public History, I cannot imagine doing anything else. Public History expanded my definition of history and how professional, and non-professional, historians can and do use it.

Currently, I am employed as county archivist for Montgomery County, Alabama. As county archivist, I have the opportunity to immerse myself in the practice of public history and publish on a diverse array of subjects. For more information on my publications and public history practice, please consult the appropriate pages on the menu at the top of the page.
