Josiah Bartlet Presidential Library
Martin is our Resident Historian.  Martin is a graduate of the University of Washington and holds a Masters in Library and Information Science from San Jose State University.  He earned a doctorate in American Studies from the College of William and Mary, where he wrote his dissertation on the Media and the Presidency.

Martin was born in Nashua, New Hampshire, but grew up in Seattle, Washington.  As an undergraduate, he was a summer intern in the White House Office of Communications during the Administration of President Jimmy Carter.  After earning his Ph.D., Martin taught American History at the University of Texas at Austin.  In Austin he also consulted with the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library & Museum.  He later went on to work as an historian with the Presidential Library system at the National Archives and Records Administration.

As a fan of Josiah Bartlet, it is a natural fit that Martin became the first Resident Historian at the Josiah Bartlet Presidential Library and Museum.  He is currently researching and writing about President Bartlet's invocation of the 25th Amendment and resigning the Presidency when his daughter Zoe was kidnapped.
