Rachel Powell Continues Her Research on the WCC

UC History graduate student, Rachel Powell, is employed at the Woman’s City Club in Cincinnati this semester after the club received a $10,000 grant from the Wilder Foundation for Rachel’s work on the club’s history. Rachel began work on the project this semester, which merges with her research on the WCC in Professor Sigrun Haude’s research seminar. This summer she will begin working full time on the project.

The award of this grant reflects the high quality of Rachel’s work last semester in the Public History Practicum offered by Professor Charles F. Casey-Leininger. The WCC is expected to raise additional funds for Rachel’s work during 2014 with the goal of having a book published in time for the club’s centennial celebration in 2015.
