He was also a key member of a team at the Lyman & Merrie Wood Museum of Springfield History in Springfield, Massachusetts, that digitized a trove of recently rediscovered Civil War materials from the 31st Massachusetts Volunteers for public access, supported by a grant from the Massachusetts Sesquicentennial Commission of the American Civil War  https://31massinf.wordpress.com/.  Stan has published a journal article about the odd confluence of nativism and school desegregation in antebellum Massachusetts.
