Robert Mills Receives Kate B. and Hall J. Peterson Fellowship from the American Antiquarian Society

Modified: April 29, 2015

Robert Mills, a Rhetoric and Public Culture program doctoral candidate, has received a Kate B. and Hall J. Peterson Fellowship from the American Antiquarian Society to support his research for his dissertation project, which is tentatively entitled “The Pirate and the Sovereign.”

Founded in 1812, the American Antiquarian Society in Worcester, Massachusetts, holds the world’s largest collection of materials printed through 1876 in the area that is now the United States, as well as a major collection of manuscripts, secondary texts, and digital resources. In 2013 President Obama presented the AAS with a National Humanities Medal, and the depository is one of the finest resources for the study of U.S., Canadian, and Caribbean history and culture before 1900. Consequently, AAS fellowships are highly sought and highly competitive.
