ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Two dozen historians, scholars and leaders of historical organizations have been named to the newly created New York State History Advisory Group.

The New York State Museum in Albany announced the panel’s creation Wednesday. Museum officials say the group will meet periodically to advise the state historian on issues related to New York state history, including preservation and heritage tourism.

State Historian Devin Lander says the group’s members will offer advice on how to raise awareness of the Empire State’s rich history.

Among the History Advisory Group’s 24 members are history professors Kenneth Jackson of Columbia University and Craig Steven Wilder of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, John Haworth of New York City’s National Museum of the American Indian and county historians Gerald Smith of Broome and Carol Kammen of Tompkins.
