About Me:

I am an Associate Professor of Political Science at Wabash College. My research focuses on social movement and interest group organizations and, especially, on collaboration among these nongovernmental groups in pursuit of shared policy goals. I'm currently writing a book on the role of lobbying coalitions in the development of civil rights policy during the 1950s and 1960s.
