Historia 1999 cover

Once again we are pleased to present another (the eighth) annual publication of Historia, the journal of Eastern Illinois University History Department. This year we are pleased to present papers spanning the globe and the historical origins of Eastern Illinois University. This issue represents a new direction for the journal. This year, Historia's production resulted from a new course: History 4900, Historical Publishing. This year also marks a new era for Historia's format: Historia Online brings the journal to the world wide web. Future students in the Historical Publishing class will continue work on the journal and the on-line version.

This year's journal contains articles by four award recipients. Greg Aydt received the Hamand Graduate Writing Award for "The Spanish-American War: The Cuban Perspective. Beth Loeke, winner of the Distinguished Historical Administration Graduate Student, presents the history of Eastern Illinois University in "Choosing a Site For the Eastern Illinois State Normal School." An Illinois regional Phi Alpha Theta Conference gave Bryan Wuthrich an award for the best graduate paper: "The US Space Program and the National Interest." Laura Kent, Distinguished History Graduate Student, produced a book review essay, "The Pleasures of Disorder."

We would like to acknowledge all the hard work the class members and the volunteers who helped make the 1999 volume a reality. We would also like to acknowledge the dedication and time Dr. Key placed in getting Historia produced within the confines of a class project. Also, we wish to thank all the students who submitted articles for publication--for without you there would not be a journal.
