Suzanne Julin to present USD's annual Cash lecture Suzanne Barta Julin will present the 7th annual Joseph Harper Cash Memorial Lecture on Oct. 25 at 8 p.m. in Farber Hall on The University of South Dakota campus.
Her topic is "History from Small Places: Senator as Artist � Peter Norbeck in the Black Hills."
A South Dakota native, Julin is a graduate of USD and worked for Cash when the South Dakota Oral History Project was established. She worked with the Oral History Project and the American Indian Research Project for 10 years, serving in several capacities including editor, research associate, and project coordinator.
After leaving Vermillion, she worked as a contracting historian, later taking a position with a health care information firm in Missoula, MT. In 1997, she returned to pursue her Ph.D. in Public and American History at Washington State University in Pullman.
The Cash lecture series was established to bring scholars in the fields of Indian studies, frontier, western, and mining history to USD for presentations and discussions. The program was developed to honor the former USD history professor, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and director of the Institute of Indian Studies.
The series is supported by private donations from Cash's family and friends and continues to grow as other contributions are received.
