Scheduled speakers include several important figures who knew Lemisch 
both as an important radical intellectual and as a longtime friend: 
Staughton Lynd, another influential figure in the emergence of New Left 
history (he will speak via Skype); Marcus Rediker, author of several 
history books that reflect Lemisch’s concern with “history from below”; 
and Ann Gordon, director of the Stanton-Anthony Papers on the history of 
the woman suffrage movement. Blanche Wiesen Cook, biographer of Eleanor 
Roosevelt and a colleague of Lemisch at the John Jay College of Criminal 
Justice, will be MC for the event.
