I’m Nick Siekierski. I created this site to share my passion for history and current affairs. I’m currently pursuing a PhD in the Tadeusz Manteuffel Institute of History at the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw, Poland. I was a Silas Palmer Fellow at the Hoover Institution in 2015.
I’ve always liked to learn about the past and organize things, I guess you could say I was born to be a historian and an archivist.
I worked at the Hoover Library and Archives at Stanford University for thirteen years. I attended San Jose State University, studying history for my bachelor’s degree and earned my master’s degree in library and information science. Since I started working full time, I’ve been fortunate to experience life in a research library from almost every angle. I’ve created museum exhibits, written articles, lead tours, blogged, made presentations on topics in 20th Century history and taught research strategies to students, professionals and local groups.
ResearchTeacher.com features book reviews, translations, videos, commentary and other forms of unique content relating to history and current affairs. If you have any questions, suggestions or just want to say hello, send me an email Nick (at) researchteacher.com
