Student Profile

Dr. Stephen Warren, assistant professor of history, and James Beatty '08 worked together on a Senior Inquiry proposal, which then led to a prestigious national award. Beatty won a Donald Anderson Fellowship from Augustana as well as a SHEAR/Mellon Undergraduate Fellowship from the McNeil Center for Early American Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. He joined nine other undergraduates in Philadelphia this summer, each of whom conducted original research on early American history. Beatty's project, “Interpreting the Shawnee Sun ,” was a collaborative endeavor with a Shawnee elder named George Blanchard. Surviving copies of the newspaper date to 1841. The Shawnee Sun marks the first attempt to translate the Shawnee language into script. Thanks to the work of Beatty and Blanchard, scholars will know more about this unique window into American Indian-missionary relations before the Civil War.
