This chapter reviews the Organization of American Historians' (OAH) transformation from “a primarily scholarly organization to a more broadly-based professional body that views teaching as central to its mission.” The evidence offered includes the OAH's establishment of the Magazine of History in 1985, its heavy involvement in the Teaching American History Grant Program, begun in 2001, and the pedagogical materials it provides in the Journal of American History and on the web site.
