Home Page for Tom Isern

This is the academic home page for Tom Isern, Professor of History & University Distinguished Professor, North Dakota State University. It is provides entry to the courses I teach and other business pertinent to my work for the university. All this material is lodged with the History RFD domain on the servers of a private provider. The same provider also hosts my other websites: one for Plains Folk, the weekly feature on history and folklife of the Great Plains, and another for the Center for Heritage Renewal, the NDSU research center for historic preservation and heritage tourism.
