Keith Beutler's new book, George Washington's Hair: How Early Americans Remembered the Founders, explains how, between 1790 and 1840, popular memory took a turn toward the physical, as exemplified by the craze for collecting locks of George Washington's hair.  This book uncovers a forgotten strand of early American memory practices and emerging patriotic identity.
