Clyde Professorship in History

 

The Aileen H. Clyde Professorship was created in 2018 to award one History professor each year with a research fund to be used to support their own teaching and research, graduate student teaching and research, or other activities that would publicize and maximize the contents of the Clyde Archive at the Marriott Library. This is a competitive faculty award, which requires interested professors to submit an application that is reviewed by the Department of History Executive Committee. The committee selects one award winner per year, and the winner is eligible to receive the Professorship honor no more than two years. The recipient is committed to teach two classes per year that require students to utilize the Archive in their scholarship. We invite you to support this important Professorship in honor of Aileen Clyde here.

Colleen McDannell

 

The inaugural Aileen H. Clyde Professor in History was Colleen McDannell.  She served two terms as the inaugural Aileen H. Clyde Professor in History (2019-2020; 2020-2021), and took on the intensive undertaking of making the Clyde Archive more accessible to students and researchers, as well as introducing hundreds of students to the incredible resource of the Clyde Archive in the classes she taught.

 

Matt BassoProfessor Matt Basso is the 2021-2022 Aileen H. Clyde Professor in History. During his term, he has added applicable World War II oral histories from the Marriot Library’s large collection to the Clyde Archive and has continued his research that involves looking at archives around the U.S. to find primary sources that illuminate the gender history of WWII. He has used some of his Clyde Professorship funds to provide honoraria for scholars to speak about their research on women, gender and leadership in the United States. Those book talks have been recorded and can be viewed here and here.

 

Beth ClementProfessor Beth Clement has just been announced as the 2022-2023 Aileen H. Clyde Professor in History. Beth will supervise History doctoral student Cindy Solomon Klebba in teaching two classes that will engage directly with the Clyde Archive: “Oral History” in the fall in the History Department and “Modern American Women” in the spring. Clement and Solomon Klebba will also supervise students trained in the fall oral history class to conduct oral histories with women in Utah who participated in the Houston Women’s Rights Convention of 1977. These oral histories would be part of an ongoing public history project on the Houston Women’s Rights Convention of 1977.
