Two graduating students in the M. A. program have had their papers for the History 700 seminar, directed by Dr. Stuart Leibiger, accepted for publication in Delaware History:
- Andy Zellers-Frederick's "Gunning Bedford, Jr., at the 1787 Constitutional Convention: Are His Most Famous Words A Myth?" appeared in the spring-summer edition.
- John Schropp's "The Great Compromiser: James Bayard and the Election of 1800" will appear in a forthcoming issue.
Some of our recent graduates have gained acceptance into prestigious Ph.D. programs in History.
Sara Bischoff, who will have completed both the B.A. and M.A. programs in History during the summer of 2008, has been accepted into the prestigious and highly selective (only ten students were admitted) Ph.D. program in American history at Rice University in Houston, Texas. Sara has been awarded a five-year, tuition-free scholarship, augmented by a very generous annual stipend. She began her studies at Rice in the fall of 2008, she has passed the Ph.D. comprehensive exams, and has begun work on her doctoral dissertation in fall, 2010.
Her dissertation will be finished Spring/Summer 2013.
Gregg Pearson, who recently earned the M.A. in History, has been accepted into the Ph.D. program at Lehigh University. Greg was awarded a University Scholarship by Lehigh, and is preparing for the Ph.D. comprehensive exams in American history.
His dissertation will be finished Spring/Summer 2013.
Matt Smalarz has recently been admitted to a truly impressive number of doctoral programs. To date (and the list continues to grow), Matt has been admitted to these programs, nearly all of which have provided a “full ride,” and often with nice annual stipends into the bargain: Clark University; Lehigh University; Loyola University of Chicago; State University of New York at Albany; University of Akron; University of Mississippi; University of Missouri; and the University of Rochester. Matt has passed the Ph.D. comprehensive exams in American History, and is currently writing his doctoral dissertation.
Frank Petrino has completed his M.A. thesis (The Lion in Lamb's Clothing: John Balliol's Role in the Diplomatic Relations of Scotland), and has entered the highly selective Ph.D. program in Medieval Studies at Fordham University.
