Seeking authors for biographical articles The German Historical Institute Washington DC (GHI) is working on a multi-year digital project, Immigrant Entrepreneurship: German-American Business Biographies, 1720 to the Present. When complete, the project will be a compilation of more than 200 biographical essays on first- and second-generation German-American immigrant entrepreneurs, combined with contextual essays on overarching topics (industry clusters, political events, immigration policy over time, etc.) that set the history of German-American entrepreneurship in context. A variety of photographs, media clips, and business documents accompany the essays. Other components of the project will include bibliographies for further research and suggestions for using the Immigrant Entrepreneurship website in the classroom. Material is added on a daily basis – over 80 biographies have already been posted – and can be viewed at www.immigrantentrepreneurship.org. We are currently looking for authors who would be interested in writing an essay on a German-American businessperson for our Volume V (1945 to the present). Names include: Annenberg, Walter (Triangle Publications, Philadelphia Inquirer, Seventeen Magazine, TV Guide) Blum, Paul (Paul Blum Co.) Eckstein, Otto (Data Resource Inc.) Emmerich, Roland (Centropolis Entertainment) Hausen, Bernard (Cardica) Jahn, Helmut (JAHN Architects) Kluge, John (Metromedia) Oppenheimer, Max (Oppenheimer & Co) Pfeiffer, Eckhard (Compaq, Texas Instruments) Rosner, Carl (Cardio Mag Imaging Inc.) Thiel, Peter (Clarium Capital, PayPal) Waldthausen, Kurt (Waldthausen & Associates) Warburg, Eric (Warburg Pincus) We are asking for articles of 5,000 - 8,000 words and offer a modest honorarium of $400.
