Congratulations to MA Alum Thomas Reidy
The history faculty at UAH were pleased to hear recently that our MA alum, Thomas Reidy, who is pursuing a PhD in American history at the University of Alabama, has received the Frank Lawrence Owsley Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship is given annually to a UA Grad student who demonstrates superior competency in American History.
Tom was also asked to and will begin working on a documentary for PBS about the lives of Clifford and Virginia Durr. The Durrs were an Alabama couple. They were New Dealers who became deeply committed to Civil Rights and are the subjects of several books.
We are also pleased that Tom will be rejoining us in Fall 2008 to teach two sections of History 103, the first half of the world history sequence.
It is nice to see our alumni doing so well!
