Green-straight-on-webMEREDITH HINDLEY is a writer and historian living in Washington, D.C. Her work has appeared in HumanitiesNew York Times, Washington PostSalon, Daily BeastChristian Science Monitor, Longreads, and Barnes and Noble Review. She found her way to the nation’s capital after growing up in Colorado and attending the University of Wyoming. As a student at Laramie, she studied English and history, while also learning the importance of Polar Fleece.

Hindley ventured east to attend American University, where she earned a master’s degree in history. A year working as a legal assistant failed to deter her from plunging back into academia, and she returned to American University to earn a Ph.D. If pressed, she will confess that one of the great things about being a historian of World War II is having a reason to visit London, Paris, and Casablanca.

Currently, she is senior writer for Humanities, the quarterly review of the National Endowment for the Humanities. She also confesses to being a fan of classic movies, lipstick, well-plotted mysteries, and the Washington Capitals. And, yes, she still owns a pair of cowboy boots. Black.
