Leadership

Paul David Thompson
FOUNDER, EDUCATOR FOR 32 YEARS
May 18, 1936 – July 4, 2013

Studies Weekly began in 1984 when fourth-grade teacher Paul Thompson needed a state history textbook to use in his class. He decided to write his own state history textbook — in a weekly magazine format — and Studies Weekly was born.
