New from “South Dakota History”

Just received my issue of South Dakota History from the SD State Historical Society Press.  If you’re not a member and don’t receive this quarterly publication of recent scholarship on the history of South Dakota, BECOME A MEMBER!

South Dakota History, Spring 2015 issue.

South Dakota History, Spring 2015 issue.

Just opening this issue was exciting– The first article is on antiwar protest on colleges in South Dakota in the 60s and 70s.  I did an undergrad paper on the big protest at Columbia University in NYC and a small oral history project in graduate school on experiences of campus antiwar protest in South Carolina, so I’m looking forward to seeing how the stories compare.  I know AIM (American Indian Movement) had a protest at Augustana College in Sioux Falls in that era, but I don’t know much about antiwar activism or reactions to it.  At the end of the article, I hope to be much better informed.  Then, the second article is a women’s history topic.  Awesome.  I’m several issues behind in my reading for this and The Public Historian, but I might skip ahead to this one…

The contents of the new issue:

  • “There is no place in our institutions for radicals”: The Vietnam War on South Dakota Campuses, 1965-1973. by Daryl Webb
  • “All calls promptly attended to, day or night”: Women Doctors in Southern Dakota Territory.  by Lisa R. Lindell
  • Historical Musings – Laura Ingalls Wilder and the Serendipity of Research: Blog Posts from the Pioneer Girl Project.

Plus book reviews, announcements, and a Dakota Images feature on William O. Farber, a long-term professor at USD who also founded their Government Research Bureau in 1938 and served as the first director of the state’s Legislative Research Council from 1951-1955.
