A researcher wrote about her great grandfather Willis S. Sullivan, born  March 26, b 1860 at Prior Creek, Cherokee Nation, Indian territory, now Oklahoma.


Her great grandmother was his first wife, Julia (Cumpston) Sullivan - she was not Cherokee.  


He had a son with his second wife Susan V. (Orndorf) Sullivan named Willis S. Jr. born circa 1892.  She understood that Jr.'s middle name was Straback.  Willis S. Sullivan Sr. was Cherokee and the 6 sons that he had in 1896 were listed on the Cherokee Roll because of his blood.  Both of his wives are listed as non citizens.

Christine Compston came aboard as director of NHEN and HTA in June 1993.She had had five years' experience teaching in secondary schools, a Ph.D. in history, and about ten years of widely ranging experience combining university teaching and directing humanities projects in Maine and New Hampshire. In her two years at NHEN she has a remarkable record of achievement. She has disseminated a quarterly newsletter since October 1993, and in January 1995 supplemented it with an electronic network to share information regarding history education, policies, and legislative action.In 1994-1995 she published a directory and resource guide to the educational activities of member organizations. Beginning last fall, she began a series of mailings informing member organizations about the debate over the National History Standards and about legislative action threatening NEH and the Department of Education.


Under Compston's direction, NHEN conducted a survey of the state social studies specialists to gather information on teacher certification, graduation requirements, and history content requirements, with results so far from 36 states. She has participated in numerous panels on history education at national conferences of member organizations, including OAH and AHA.At the state level, she is currently working on amending an Oklahoma bill that would otherwise exclude all of the social studies from an examination required for high school graduation.
