Walter Prescott Webb's contributions to the study of history, detailing the direction historical studies have taken since Webb wrote. Webb's historiography and its relationship to classroom instruction is the subject of the second essay, by Elliott West. An appreciation of Webb and a sense of his teaching style are offered by Anne M. Butler and Richard A. Baker, while Dennis Reinhartz discusses the use of maps in the classroom, a practice to which Webb was committed. In a postscript, Llerena Friend writes a personal tribute to her mentor and colleague.
