Agnes R. Howard teaches history at Gordon College in Wenham, Massachusetts, specializing in early America, particularly colonial New England. She holds a PhD from the University of Virginia. She has spent time in Washington, DC, working in the office of Vice President Dan Quayle and for the journal, The Public Interest. The birth of three children brought her attention to the history and culture of childbearing; the attainment of teen years by the eldest of the three has stretched those interests to other elements of the cultural landscape. Her articles have appeared in Commonweal, First Things, The Weekly Standard, Books & Culture, The Cresset, and other publications.
