Marcia Schmidt Blaine: In spring 2008, the Public and Local History class created an exhibit on Town-Gown Relations between Plymouth State and the town. Currently, it is on display in Lamson Library on the desks over the reference area. We hope you will have the opportunity to view it! Blaine has an article coming out soon in History: the Journal of the History Association (a British publication) titled “The Johnsons’ Plight: The Role of Captivity on Anglo-American Identity,” which explores the role of fear, insecurity, and adaptation on colonial captives and their governments. The possibility and reality of captivity was one of many parts of the American experience that added to the developing Anglo-American identity. Blaine is the new Coordinator of History. She urges all alumni history majors to stay in touch with her or a former advisor. We like to know what you are doing!
