About the Author

David Trask is Image of David Trask Professor of History at Guilford Technical Community College in Jamestown, North Carolina, where he teaches world civilization and western civilization. He was coeditor of a special issue of The History Teacher (November 1999) on teaching history at two-year colleges and served as contributing editor for the Teaching column of Perspectives, the Newsletter of the American Historical Association. Trask has worked on a variety of projects that address cross-cultural comparisons and perspectives. His current project compares Episcopal missionary work among the Lakota with Anglican efforts in eastern Nigeria from the 1890s to the later 1930s. This study includes the examination of official, “authorless,” documents against developments within the mission field and requires the extraction of intent from these writings.
