Conference Site

The keynote speaker at the conference dinner will be Professor Jeffrey Williamson, Laird Bell Professor of Economics, Emeritus, Harvard University.

In addition to the sessions, we will be organizing some social activities that should be of interest to all participants. These include a riverboat cruise on the mighty Mississippi and a trip to the ballpark for dinner and a prime seat in the Lumberyard, home of the La Crosse Loggers of the Northwoods League; for those interested in good minor league baseball, more information may be found at http://northwoodsleague.com/. Of course, in keeping with the collegial nature of EBHS, there will be ample opportunity for informal social activities, and La Crosse has no shortage of great options.

If you have questions about the meeting or organization please contact Program Chair Mike Haupert, mhaupert@uwlax.edu, or EBHS President Erik Benson, erik.benson@cornerstone.edu.

EBHS also operates a peer-reviewed open access journal, Essays in Economic and Business History, edited by Jason Taylor (Central Michigan University). Conference papers and non-conference papers alike may be submitted to Essays for consideration. We invite you to visit our website, www.ebhsoc.org, to see our editorial board and policies, as well as back issues.

We look forward to welcoming you to La Crosse!
