•Forty years of
award-winning experience •Specializing
in nineteenth century America, women’s history, the Underground Railroad, and historic preservation.
Born and raised in upstate New York, I taught New York State history, local history, women's history, and 19th century U.S. history at the State University of New York at Oswego. I also worked as curator of our local history manuscripts collection and helped found programs in women's studies and museum studies. I still teach two Oswego courses online through the SUNY Learning Network: Doing History Locally and Heritage Tourism and Historic Preservation. In 2000, I started a business called Historical New York Research Associates, focusing on social and community history, women's history, and the Underground Railroad, with a special emphasis on historic sites. I live in an old house in the country, beside a mill pond, surrounded by huge old maple trees, good neighbors, and unruly but much-loved gardens, dogs, and cats.
