Since graduating from Swarthmore College with a Bachelor of Arts in History in June 2014, I have found a family in Philadelphia's vibrant historic community while working at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and the Philadelphia History Museum.
As you can tell from my blog series "A Philly Foodie Explores Local History," I have an intense interest in food, much of which comes from my family's background in agriculture and a personal love of cooking and good eats. At Swarthmore, I explored my overlapping interests in agriculture, food, and history through a Senior Research Project about Pennsylvania county fairs at the turn of the 20th century.
