The Real Live Historian is also known as Kristen Noble Keegan. Based in Connecticut, she has wide-ranging interests in history, geography, and cooking, which are all more or less represented in this blog. She is a public historian, historical title searcher, and an adjunct professor at Fairfield University, holding an M.A. in History and a Ph.D. in Geography, both from the University of Connecticut. She’s still a bit amazed that the whole dissertation thing is actually over. But it is: if you’re up for some hardcore statistics, you can find it here.
Her husband, Bill Keegan, is a historical geographer and also a regular contributor to this blog of the “Guess what I just found?” type.
