History Students

Truman history students Shannon Fetzner, Nick Pruett and Alexandra Miller participated in a panel entitled “Regulating Class, Race and Ethnicity in Early Twentieth-Century America” at the virtual Missouri Conference on History, March 11. The panel was chaired by Jason McDonald, assistant professor of history. The presentations delivered by Fetzner and Pruett were both based on projects first started in a history course with McDonald in fall 2019.

In summer 2020, Pruett completed the research for his paper with support from Office of Student Research’s Grants-in-Aid of Scholarship and Research program. Miller’s paper, entitled “The Making of Useful Citizens’: Social Engineering in Kansas City Parks, 1893–1923,” was based on archival research completed during summer 2020 as part of the TruScholars Summer Undergraduate Research Program sponsored by the Office of Student Research.
