Deathways dissertation and blog

My name is Kelly Brennan Arehart and I just graduated from the College of William and Mary. My dissertation, "Men of Sorrow, Markets of Grief, A History of the American Funeral Industry, 1780-1930," may be of interest to some on H-death. I have also created a blog using primary sources from my dissertation that may also be of interest. http://fetch-the-undertaker.tumblr.com/

Thank you,

Kelly Brennan Arehart, Ph.D.
