The Vault

I run The Vault, a history blog on Slate.com. Between November 2012 and the spring of 2016, I posted three to five times a week, offering archival items that are particularly funny, thought-provoking, sad, beautiful, or amazing. A typical Vault post featured a large image of a letter, photograph, object, or film clip, paired with a bit of historical interpretation and context.

The Vault is now largely dormant. But if you are interested in pitching an item or a post for the blog, please use my contact form to get in touch. I still run guest posts from time to time.

I made this timeline displaying all of the Vault documents using Knightlab’s Timeline JS.
