Since 1990 I have been a Reference Librarian and Archivist for the High Library at Elizabethtown College in Elizabethtown, PA. (please click below for a curriculum vitae). During the past few years we have created a number of digital collections of materials held in the College Archives. These projects have been cooperative endeavors with the Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies; the LYRASIS library network; and through the efforts of the following student library assistants: Jenna Zimmerman, Elyse Ford, April Tuggle, Morgan Nebbia, and Annemarie Hartzell.
My recent personal research has mostly focussed on two socially-prominent slaveowners from Frederick County, Maryland, Outerbridge Horsey (yes, that was his actual name!) and his brother-in-law, John Lee. Some of this research was published in Pennsylvania History: A Journal of Mid-Atlantic Studies, Southern Studies, and forthcoming in Louisiana History.
