Shields Scholar Project 2012/13

The library was pleased to partner with the History Department to sponsor a Shields Scholar to develop a research topic of the student’s own choosing utilizing the holdings of Special Collections. Nickolas Perrone, a graduate student in history working under faculty adviser, Professor of History Eric Rauchway, focused on the individual archives of radical intellectuals, both academic and working class, as well as the pamphlet collections on the American Left. Nickolas is primarily interested in the convergence of labor and the environment in California. Working closely with the Special Collections staff, Rare Book Librarian John Sherlock, University Archivist John Skarstad, and Department Head Daryl Morrison, Nickolas explored five radical political collections and described the collections and their research potential for graduate and undergraduate students. His work culminated in “An Essay on Five Collections in Special Collections.”
