Course number : F408 Spring 2018   
« back to classes page
Wednesdays, 9:40–11:05, Mar. 28–Apr. 4
Two sessions
Instructor: Carrie Meyer
Old family diaries, letters, pictures, and other memorabilia often fascinate family members, but the difficulty is deciding what to do with them. The instructor has produced two published books (one based on diaries and farm ledgers and another based on World War I letters) as well as four distinct family histories done in PowerPoint. This two-session course will help generate ideas and starting points for those who may be interested in similar projects.
Carrie Meyer is associate professor of economics at George Mason University. She is author of Days on the Family Farm and Letters from the Boys: Wisconsin World War I Soldiers Write Home
