Dr. Delaney’s History Central



Hi, welcome to my web page.  I teach history at Three Rivers Community College in Norwich, CT.  I know: you think history is a boring subject; it brings tears to your eyes.  Well I happen to disagree.  History is very exciting.  And each and every semester it is my pleasure to prove to students that they too can enjoy history.  And many times they find that along the way they may have learned a thing or two (and that never hurts).


            Below you can find more about me and the courses I teach.  If you have any comments, let me know.  I am always interested in feedback.

Still at it all these years!
