Saint Michael's students shine at the Phi Alpha Theta Regional Conference

History students Jacob (Jake) Carleen, Matthew Phillips, and Mary Farnsworth presented formal papers at the Phi Alpha Theta Regional History Honors conference. They made us proud with their professional delivery of original research and writing. Their attendance at the conference marks the end of very distinguished academic careers here at Saint Mike's as all three will graduate this next month.

Jake's paper focused on the story of Blues singer, Memphis Minnie, and the connection between the experiences of African Americans in the Depression. Matt's paper focused on the connection between national identity and the development of a national creation story in early history textbooks. Mary's paper looked at the WWI experiences of Albert Fray, shell shock and the larger story of the soldiers who returned with severe mental and physical disabilities.

We are all very proud of Jake, Matt, and Mary!
