Dear BHC members:
I am joining with Blaine McCormick (Baylor University) to conduct a third survey of business historians asking them "who are the greatest entrepreneurs" in U.S. history? The first two surveys appeared in these outlets:
Business History Review (2003): https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/business-history-review/article/survey-of-business-historians-on-americas-greatest-entrepreneurs/DE3BFB72792565871954A3B40DD98C7E
Cogent Business and Management (2013); also appeared in Forbes:
The first survey asked 58 business historians, the second survey asked 41. For the third survey, which we will send out in January 2021, we would like to ensure broader participation. Toward that end, we welcome volunteers who are business historians who teach or research the U.S. If you are interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with a CV and a short statement of your credentials.
