History, Applied is me, Pete Anderson, a historian working in the Ottawa area. A graduate of Carleton University's Bachelor of the Humanities and Master of Arts in Public History programs, I am passionate about Canadian history. My research focused on the social politics of history education in early twentieth century Ontario and the diverse approaches to civic education in public schools during that period.
I have worked as a historical researcher at a government agency and am a volunteer with a local museum. Currently, I work as a public history consultant, completing projects for individuals, companies, and government agencies on topics ranging from genealogy, military, local Ottawa, educational, agricultural, and economic history.
I am always looking for new projects, so if you have one please don't hesitate to contact me at peter[at]historyapplied[dot]com, or take a look at the consulting tab.
