The Academic Burt Reynolds

This morning the BackStory Tumblr posted an old snapshot of “History Guy” and Encyclopedia Virginia Editorial Advisory Board member  (and University of Richmond president and former University of Virginia dean of the College of Arts & Sciences and noted Civil War scholar blah blah blah) Ed Ayers.

The academic Burt Reynolds. Ed writes — “I’d say this photo shows conclusively that the History Guys reflect their times as well as reflect on their times. I’m reflecting here early 80’s academic Bohemianism, I believe.”
