The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History granted upper school history teachers Celia Goedde and Ken Neisser fellowships to study American history this summer.
Goedde will attend a one week long seminar titled “Gender, Race and Nation in Civil War America” at the University of Pennsylvania.
Neisser will study the “United States in Depression and War, 1929-1945” at Stanford University for a week at the end of June under the direction of historian David Kennedy.
“Professor Kennedy has long been my idol among great, writing historians and I never in my wildest dreams expected I would meet him, much less spend a full week in his company,” Neisser said.
