Publishing a diary that was written in France but surfaced in a flooded basement in Canton, Ohio, seemed a quixotic project. This lecture covers fifteen years of research and encourages others to pursue unlikely topics and fascinating stories. Publication of Relief Work as Pilgrimage: “Mademoiselle Miss Elsie” in Southern France, 1945-1948 in 2015 was a reward for venturing beyond one’s depth.
M. J. Heisey teaches modern American History at SUNY Potsdam. She enjoys students, especially when she is one of them. Her research focuses on American pacifism.
