What We’re Reading: August 21, 2008 Edition

This edition of What We’re Reading should have a code name and secret password. We start off with news of the recent release of Office of Strategic Services files and the revelation of identities of some agents. Then, we turn to NPR, with a story on Fort Hunt Park in Virginia’s secret role in WWII. We turn next to history blogs to hear about bad experiences with the Academic Job Wiki and good experiences with bad history films. Want to partner with the Government Printing Office? They’re looking to digitize a number of historical materials. Finally, read about a $3 million boxing archive, an extensive online photo collection, the Women’s History Museum’s search for a home, NASA’s chief historian, and the five secrets to publishing success.
