Looking back, it seems like every history professor I ever had was ancient. When my junior high history teacher was talking about the signing of the Magna Carta, I figured he had been there that day.
There are young historians out there, though — and Baylor has one of the best. Earlier this month, The History News Network named Dr. Thomas Kidd one of 20 Top Young Historians from all across the world based on his contributions to the area of historical research. Kidd has focused on 18th-century North American history, especially the history of evangelism.
Sic ’em, Dr. Kidd!
