Geography

In 2017, I received a grant from the Virginia Beach Historical Preservation Commission to produce a website and research paper on Seaview Beach, a historical African-American beach in Hampton Roads. That website and corresponding paper can be found below:

For several years, I taught a historical geography class at Old Dominion University. Students used Sanborn maps, city directories, newspaper archives as well as university and public library archives to construct histories of Norfolk neighborhoods. The information and photographs were then used to produce websites so that the public could have access to the information.

Below are links to those sites:

The Jackson Eisteddod, a Welsh singing competition, was the subject of my thesis at Ohio University. The website can be found at the link below:
