A key figure in applying modern approaches to the study and writing of West Virginia history, Charles Henry Ambler (August 12, 1876-August 31, 1957) was born in New Matamoras, Ohio. He grew up in St. Marys, West Virginia, and from 1894 to 1900 he taught school in Pleasants County. After completing his doctorate in 1908, Ambler taught history and political science at Randolph-Macon College in Virginia until 1917. For the next 30 years he was a member of the WVU history department, and from 1929 to 1946 he served as chairman. Among his enduring legacies was the creation of the West Virginia and Regional History Collection in the university library. ; Author Signed; Maps; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 365 pages; Signed by Author
