Peter Small believes that it is people who make history happen.  While teaching social studies, he developed his program with costumed presentations from George Washington to Harry Truman for his classes, which became memorable and enjoyable lessons for his pupils.  He has performed before a wide variety of audiences.  For ten years he was the presenter at Knott's Berry Farm's Thomas Edison Workshop.  He has been a performing artist with The Performing Tree of Los Angeles, and is currently an adjunct instructor for the Older Adults Program at the North Orange County Community College District.  He has performed at the Ronald Reagan, Herbert Hoover, Richard Nixon, and George Bush Presidential Libraries, Port Huron, Michigan's Thomas Edison Festival, and has appeared on the History Channel and KTTV-TV's Midday Sunday in Los Angeles.
