The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has granted $800,000 to Washington College’s Chesapeake Heartland, an innovative public history project led by the Starr Center in collaboration with an array of Kent County partners and the National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Birch Bayh, a Senior Fellow at the Starr Center, an American hero of historic stature, and an extraordinary mentor and friend to many Washington College students, faculty, and staff, died in the early morning hours of March 14.
From among a statewide field of nearly 700 artists, the Maryland State Arts Council has conferred Individual Artist Awards for 2019 to three from WC working in creative nonfiction, works on paper, and media.
In honor of Women’s History Month, we pay tribute to a former biology professor who pioneered freshwater ecology. We asked student historian Andrew Darlington ’19 to investigate the WC teacher and environmental groundbreaker Kathleen Carpenter.
