We at the JI are pleased to welcome a new guest blogger, Kate B. Kate’s an admired presence in the Mormon history world, having published (among other works) an award-winning article in the Utah Historical Quarterly, and has presented at a veritable plethora of MHA conferences. She holds an MA in history, and was a key cog in the now famous 2003 Claudia Bushman-directed “Mormon Women in the Twentieth Century” summer seminar. Her interests include women’s history, Mormon history, local history and historic preservation. Also, she graced my own grad school experience with her presence. Current hobbies include chasing around a two year old and his dog.
We are eager to see what she comes up with. Welcome, Kate!
