Meet the Iowa Architect Documenting Every Slave House Still Standing

"Jobie Hill has visited 700 former residences. Many have been abandoned. Some have become storage space. Others are B&Bs....

Since 2012, Hill has surveyed hundreds of structures that she believes once served as a home to enslaved African Americans. More often than not, the buildings bear no visible trace of their past ... Hill is determined to build a first-of-its-kind database that honors and preserves these spaces in more than memory, and to unite the houses with the stories of people who once inhabited them."

Dear Colleagues,

With a heavy heart, I write to share the sad news that Jeffrey L. Sammons passed away on February 15.  A giant of Heine studies has left us. He was a kind and generous colleague. 

Jocelyne Kolb has written a moving tribute, which I have attached here.

In sadness, on behalf of the North American Heine Society,

Jonathan Skolnik
