History at Work: Remembering the New Deal in Michigan
Professor McClellan is partnering with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and the Michigan State Historic Preservation Office to offer a class in public history research for University of Michigan undergraduates. In the class, the students are contributing to the historical research component of the State of Michigans effort to reconstruct and revitalize the New Deal-era Waterloo Area Recreation Center. The students will also explore methods of presenting their research into the New Deal origins and history of the Waterloo Recreation Center to the public.
Faculty presented the outcomes of their projects at the Imagining America Conference in October 2008 in Los Angeles, California.
