Now that I’m back from Colorado, I only have one more week left with my internship. It was great meeting everyone, and was fun for the most part. However, now I have a whole mess of work to get done and not much time to...

As I have described in previous posts, one of the things I have worked on throughout this internship was a research project about Latino homesteaders in Arizona. When I wasn’t helping out with the visitors or working on transcribing the oral histories, I was looking...
