Collection Description

Administrative History

The Central European History journal was started in 1968 by the Conference Group for Central European History of the American Historical Association to provide scholars of German and Central European history a specialized academic journal following the cessation of publication of a similar journal in 1963. Emory University assumed financial and administrative responsbilities for the journal with Professor of History Douglas A. Unfug as editor. Dr. Unfug resigned from his editorial duties in 1990 and was succeeded by Kenneth Barkin of the University of California, Riverside.
