“I took Dr. Howard Smead’s civil rights course at UMBC in the spring of 1995, and just wanted to let you know what an important role it wound up playing for me. When I signed up for the course I was contemplating a career change, having completed a B.A. in biology but no longer desiring a laboratory position. Dr. Smead’s course confirmed my desire to become a historian, and that fall I began the graduate program in the history of science at Hopkins. I am thrilled to say that since then I've published my first book, The Oyster Question: Scientists, Watermen, and the Maryland Chesapeake Bay since 1880, and am an Associate Professor of Science, Technology, and Society in the Public Policy Department at Rochester Institute of Technology.”
