Jessica's Experience Assisting on a Missouri Historical Review Article
The “From the Stacks” article is an important part of the Missouri Historical Review; therefore, it was a very beneficial experience to assist with one as a graduate student in public history. As the graduate assistant in the State Historical Society’s research center on campus, I assisted the director of the Cape Girardeau center with the most recent “From the Stacks” article. This included assisting with the research and drafting of the piece. It was decided the topic should be about the society’s collections which could assist researchers in learning and interpreting Amy Husband Kimmel. As a professional, I was able to help with research and writing that communicated what materials the society has to offer researchers along with how this material could be useful to them.
