Alumna News from Katie Leonard

Here’s a report from one of our alums in the public history world:

I’m working at the Dutchess County History Department (Poughkeepsie, NY) indexing 18th and 19th century court documents for a NYS grant funded digitization project, and at the Rockefeller Archive Center (Sleepy Hollow, NY) as an archival assistant on the reference team. I’ve worked at both places for over 3 years now.

 

Congratulations to Nic Wood

Our former MA student Nicholas Wood completed his post-doctoral term at Yale and is on to a new tenure-track position at Spring HIll College.  All best, NIc!
