INTRODUCTION TO THE SERIES

 

At the 2008 Dickinson Family Association (DFA) reunion, President Alan Dickinson announced the

formation of a Research and Publications Committee. Members of the committee were Andrew Dickin-

son, Elizabeth Haydon Keithcart, and John Haydon.

 

During the following months a plan evolved for an initial series of publications. These were to be short

articles or monographs on the life and work of descendants of Nathaniel Dickinson, organized according

to various disciplines or topics. Subsequently, other topics related to the Dickinson Family Assocation

were deemed acceptable for inclusion in this series. The hope is that eventually these articles might be

compiled in a single bound collection.

 

Contributions from members of the Dickinson Family Association were solicited at the 2008 meeting,

and later in the newsletter and on the website. Anyone interested is invited to submit an article to

Elizabeth Keithcart by e-mail at keithcarte@yahoo.com or by postal mail to Elizabeth Keithcart, Benerd

School of Education, University of the Pacific, 3601 Pacific Avenue, Stockton, CA 95204.
