Indianapolis, IN

I received a BA in history from Scripps College, an MA in European History from University of Illinois, and was a Summer Seminarian at West Point in 2004. I am the recipient of awards from the American Legion, the Indiana Historical Society, the DAR and the Indianapolis WW2 Round Table. I have taught European History, Military History, Historiography at the secondary level, and German at secondary and college levels. I founded and continue to direct the Legacy Initiative Project, whose mission is to provide hands-on history research opportunities for motivated students, including the Library of Congress Veterans History Project. Hundreds of the best wartime oral histories, letters and diaries have been published in five anthologies, four biographies, as well as WW1 and WW2 themed travel journals. I have lived and traveled in Europe and Asia with family, groups of students and adults. For more details about the Legacy Initiative Project go to:
