As it was, I spent a lot of time putting tiny colored dots on old road maps (which I then xeroxed because those damn dots would come off all the time). But I thought it mattered to know exactly how many bars, hotels, motels, gas stations, tire stores, and laundromats a tourist (or local visitor) to Gallup encountered driving in and out and where they were concentrated and that was the only way I could figure it out. And it changed a whole lot after the highway came in. I’m contemplating having my kids use Sketch-up to put in the buildings for the maps of the blocks of Philadelphia that they research using fire insurance maps from and 1880-1920-1960. The maps have enough info that they could get reasonable fascimilies. And Sketch-up is supposed to be super easy, but I haven’t played with it yet to know.

And you better grab that Felicity doll, I heard she was on the to be discontinued list.

That’s my school! I can vouch for the quality of the students and colleagues – so many interesting methodologies, concentrations, and questions, and for early American history you simply can’t beat the location. Good luck to all applicants! Go TRIBE!
