SCJ BRO & Friends,

a decade plus and counting.

 

Our first conference was the SCSC in Cleveland, OH, October 2000. In the group were RC professors Gary G. Gibbs, Whitney A.M. Leeson, James M. Ogier, & Florinda Ruiz. Karen Harris, our office manager, was there as well, along with student interns Laura Roberts & Timothy Leitzke.

What we learned very quickly, and as happens especially at the International Congress on Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo, is that our table in the exhibits hall becomes a locus for people to meet and talk. Here is Katherine French (SUNY New Paltz) talking with Mary Hill Cole (Mary Baldwin College). The second picture has Karen, Tim, & Laura in front of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

And here we are, exhausted, on the way home to Roanoke.

And then we went to Denver, CO in 2001. Our student interns were Laura Haffley and Shannon Meyer.

The 2003 meeting of the SCSC was in Pittsburgh. We drove. In two cars! PhDs driving! Both cars got lost at different parts of the journey between Roanoke, VA & Pittsburgh, PA. But we made it! Our student interns were April Sterba and Erika Arbogast. Besides the usual BRO crew (Gibbs, Leeson, Ogier, & Harris), we were joined by Art Historian Jane Long.
