ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Sheldon Stern

Dr. Sheldon Stern taught U.S. history at the college level for more than a decade before becoming historian at the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston, Mass. He was the first non-member of the ExComm, and the first professional historian, to listen to all the secret White House tape recordings made during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. His new book, “The Cuban Missile Crisis in American Memory: Myths versus Reality,” marks the event’s 50th anniversary and will be published in September 2012.
