It's my pleasure to welcome you to the third edition of Timeline, the history department's annual newsletter! As always, I'd like to thank the editor, Dan Meissner for his perseverance and creativity, and to our colleagues and students for submitting reports of their activities.
Among the year's highlights are:
The annual Klement and Casper Lectures;
But there are many other activities and publications and events that reveal much about this dynamic and busy department. I would like to mention a couple of features on the department Web site (at http://www.marquette.edu/history/) that may interest you. These include links to a compilation of our facultyís publications and to a list of former Ph.D. students, along with their current employment at colleges, universities, and other institutions. You can also listen to a cut from Phil Naylorís Western Civilization Blues Band (thatís him in the shades and beret in the bottom left-hand corner). And I invite you to browse through the entries in "This Week in Marquette History," which several research assistants have compiled to help celebrate the universityís 125th anniversary.
Please feel free to pass the website address along to friends and classmates; we obtained email addresses from the Alumni Relations office, so only history grads with up-to-date files received the email linking alumni to this newsletter. With your help, we can reach even more former students. If you are a former undergraduate or graduate student and have something youíd like to share in the next newsletter, please contact Dan Meissner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
