Shane Lopez Wins Consortium Library Prize
Shane Lopez was recently named the winner of the 2012 Consortium Library Prize, an award given for the best research paper each year, university-wide and among all disciplines. The paper, titled “North to Dakota, West to Wisconsin, and South to the Carolinas: The Crossroads of the Resettlement Administration,” was written for a Spring 2011 History A477 Senior Seminar course with Professor Elizabeth James. The study examined a little known New Deal organization which was created to aid farmers and rural citizens during the Great Depression.
Shane plans to further refine the article and submit it for publication to a historical journal, perhaps one that focuses on agricultural issues or the history of the Mid-West.
