Caitlin Fendley

Please join me in congratulating Caitlin Fendley, Ph.D. candidate in history, for winning the Walter Nugent Graduate Student Paper Award at the Indiana Association of Historians’ annual meeting.

The prize committee at the organization’s 39th annual meeting, held Feb. 23 at Hanover College, selected Caitlin’s paper – “’The Population Bomb is Everyone’s Baby’: Voluntary Aspects of Zero Population Growth” – as the finest paper presented at the conference by a graduate student participant. The award comes with a $500 prize.

A Purdue student has won the award in both years since its inception. Last year, Molly Mersmann won the inaugural Nugent prize for a paper on global interests in rebuilding the post-Civil War South.

Congratulations, Caitlin!
