Many scholars have utilized history, including that of the administrative state specifically and that of a more contextual variety, to great effect in the work on American political development, policy history, and other subfields of political science and public administration. However, history can and should play a more central role in the discipline of public administration. Using Dwight Waldo’s foundational work in the field as a starting point and theoretical frame, this chapter reviews the ways in which scholars have put to use their understanding of history to move the field forward, and re-conceptualizes that frame to better serve scholars in the contemporary era.
