About

lindsay-m-chervinsky-headshot

 

I am a historian of Early America, focusing on the political world from the 1770s to the 1810s. My goal is to produce history that speaks to my fellow scholars as well as a larger public audience. I believe history can be exhilarating and I want to share my passion with as many people as possible.

In the fall of 2017, I joined the Center for Presidential History at Southern Methodist University as a Postdoctoral Fellow. I am currently finishing my book, The President’s Cabinet: George Washington and the Creation of an American Institution. The manuscript is under contract with Harvard University Press and will be released in fall 2019.

In my spare time, you’ll find me reading, baking, or hiking with my dog, John Quincy Dog Adams (or Quincy for short).

On special occasions, I dress him up and take pictures of him at historic homes.
