Emily Curtis Walters: Storyteller and PhD Candidate in History

Emily Curtis Walters

Emily Curtis Walters was not always passionate about history. She did, however, love hearing stories from the past. As a child, she spent many hours at her grandmother’s house that was filled with memorabilia. “I loved going through all of her stuff and fishing out the things that interested me,” Emily remembers. “My grandmother would tell me the story of each item, who it belonged to, and how it pertained to her life. I didn’t understand how that was history at the time.”
