Research Interests

Essays on Louisa May Alcott and on Henry David Thoreau for Student Encyclopedia of Great American Writers reflect an interest in other Nineteenth Century Writers

And wildly different from all this: history of one of the churches of the District of Columbia, which is really a study of the city itself.
