Nathan Vernon Madison on Tredegar Iron Works: Richmond's Foundry on the James

Merry Christmas from the PCWRT!  This month we welcome author and historian, Nathan Vernon Madison.

Nathan is a native of Powhatan County, Blessed Sacrament-Huguenot class of 2002. After earning a B.A. in History at the University of Mary Washington and an M.A. in History at Virginia Commonwealth University, Nathan began work at the American Civil War Museum at Historic Tredegar in 2011, as an historical consultant for new signs, exhibits and education programs at the museum.

He is a speaker on, and author of several academic books and articles regarding,his preferred topics, of popular culture history and economic/industrial history; his first book –Anti-Foreign imagery in American Pulps and Comic Books, 1920-1960(MacFarland, 2013) – was a revision upon his master’s thesis. His most recent book is the first, complete history of one of Richmond most famed landmarks –Tredegar Iron Works – Richmond’s Foundry on the James(History Press, 2015).

Nathan has participated and/or helped produce documentaries regarding Virginia history and other topics for the BBC, AMC, and C-SPAN; he is co-producer of an upcoming documentary, set to air on PBS early next year, chronicling the parallel histories of Richmond’s Tredegar, and its namesake iron town in southeastern Wales.

Nathan is also a founder and co-director of the Richmond Economic History Project, a non-profit organization tasked with researching and digitizing the economic, industrial and infrastructural history of Richmond; currently, Nathan is drafting and editing the program for the next annual conference of the Society for Industrial Archaeology, to be held in Richmond next summer.
