Historians testifying for Big Tobacco

Here is a link to the HNN blog Cliopatria where Ralph E. Luker assembles material about historians who testified on behalf of tobacco companies in health law suits.  One of the most famous of the historians later died of lung cancer.  The blog includes a link to Jon Wiener, "Big Tobacco and the Historians," Nation, Feb. 25, 2010, that interviews historians who testified on the other side at considerable cost to themselves.
