History Camp Authors



    America's Summer Roadtrip 2020


      Lee Wright, MS, moved to New England in 2005, bought an old house (c 1780), and soon was serving on the board of his local historical society and historical commission. He started The History List in 2011 and History Camp in 2014.

      In 2019 he founded The Pursuit of History, LLC, with Carrie Lund after seeing the success of History Camp and believing that there was a need for more History Camps and more innovative ways to engage people from all walks of life with history.

      Lee has spoken at the New England Museum Association conference and the annual conference of the America Association for State and Local History. He has a Masters of Management from Northwestern University and lives in Marlborough, Massachusetts.
