I’m Andrew Wehrman, a historian, writer, and associate professor of history at Central Michigan University.  I  received my Ph.D. from Northwestern University, and M.A.T. and B.A. from the University of Arkansas. I previously taught at Marietta College in Marietta, Ohio. My research and teaching focuses on Colonial and Revolutionary America and the history of medicine, disease, and public health. In addition to my book, The Contagion of Liberty, I have written articles for The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, and NBC News among others. In my writing and in my speaking engagements, I seek to put current questions about government responses to epidemics (or lack thereof) and public vaccination efforts into a lively historical context.
