Beeman, Penn Press author and John Welsh Centennial Professor of History Emeritus at the University of Pennsylvania, has recently passed away after a long illness. Beeman was author of two Penn Press books: The Evolution of the Southern Backcountry (1984) and The Varieties of Political Experience in Eighteenth-Century America (2004). He also served as director of the McNeil Center in the 1980s and as a dean at Penn.
