Biographical / Historical

The American Studies Program was established at Yale in 1946, but had its roots an earlier cross-disciplinary program known as History, Arts, and Letters (H.A.L.). A gift from William Robertson Coe in 1950 allowed American Studies to become a large-scale program comprised of undergraduate and graduate courses of study in every aspect of American history.
