Doctoral Candidate Steven Harris-Scott was awarded a one-month Gilder Lehrman residential fellowship at the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Library, sponsored by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.
This fellowship provides access to the Rockefeller Library's distinguished collection of primary and secondary sources relating to eighteenth-century Williamsburg, the colonial Chesapeake, African American studies, decorative arts and material culture through 1830, archaeology, architectural history, digital history, and historic preservation. An important component of the work of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation's Division of Research and Historical Interpretation, Rockefeller Library fellowships primarily support research on topics related to British America, the American Revolution, and the Early Republic. Fellows are expected to be in continuous residence at the Library during their fellowship period and to participate in the intellectual life of the Foundation's active research and education campus. Fellows are invited also to attend colloquia, seminars, and lectures at the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture and at the College of William and Mary.
