On Tuesday, May 14th, 2019 our graduating MA students in Archives and Public History presented their final capstone projects. The capstone is a yearlong project where students put what they’ve learned in their coursework to use on a project that they design, shape, and carry out. This year’s event featured projects by Emily Anderson (Public History), Alexandra Gomer (Archives), Clinton Krute (Archives), Alexa Logush (Archives), Daniel O’Connor (Archives), Kate Philipson (Archives), and Abigail Wilson (Archives).
