The winter 2019 issue of Utah Historical Quarterly will focus on a special theme: the edges of the Great Salt Lake, where the water meets the land. We welcome short or long research articles, biographies, primary documents, photographic essays, and archaeological field notes and case studies related to that dynamic border. We are especially interested in wetlands, waterfowl hunting, bird refuges, boats, and development along the lake's edges. We also welcome essays that examine the lake in a larger environmental and cultural context.
Reminder: June 30 deadline is approaching.

I am presently working on a book about Thomas Mundy Peterson, the first African-American to vote in the U.S. under the Fifteenth Amendment in 1870. He voted in a Perth Amboy, NJ charter referendum the day after the Amendment became law. I have been researching Peterson for some time and decided that since 2020 will be the 150th anniversary of his vote, now is the time to expand this out into a full book!

For all of his gregariousness, Monsignor John O’Grady is one of the lesser-known leaders in twentieth century American Catholic history. And yet, he is one of the founders and organizers of what is today known as Catholic Charities, USA, one of the largest charitable organizations in America, and of CARITAS, which carries the mission to serve and advocate for the poor globally. Like many a priest in the early twentieth-century United States, O’Grady was born in Ireland.

A colleague and I are working on a encyclopedic-like text on Ethos, and I'm looking for a few scholars to write about a specific ethos of a nation/tribe's respective ethos. One of my greatest concerns about these contributions is co-opting or colonizing an ethos, so if you or a small group of colleagues are part of that nation/tribe, this would be most helpful.
