In this chapter, Anne Scott, the third woman to serve as president of the Organization of American Historians (OAH), recalls her presidency as a “crisis ridden year” and wonders why the OAH has never confronted the question of criteria for its presidents. Grading her performance a B-, she ends with advice and a warning for her successors.
