There is no substitute for inperson research. For more detailed listings of sources of site history information and repositories in which to ﬁnd them, see Bookspan, 1991. Historians today face many challenges to uncovering what sometimes may seem to be the simplest facts. The repercussions of 9/11, for instance, include many agencies denying access to public information about infrastructure, such as maps or plans depicting sewer systems, highway development, or electrical systems. One agency recently denied access to information regarding a closed underground storage tank under the provisions of the National Security Act.
Placing those operations in context is equally important. Pursuing an entity that operated at the site in the late 1800s may not be a good use of resources if the historian is investigating a groundwater plume contaminated with chlorinated solvents, because chlorinated solvents only gained widespread use during and after World War II. As will be discussed in more detail herein, establishing a nexus between the actual contamination that has been found and the party who may have contributed to it is the key that may convince the successor to that entity to participate ﬁnancially in the cleanup of the site.
