Ruth is originally from New Jersey, and she moved around a bit before moving back to the area. She has a BA in History and a PhD in Sociology. A sociologist with a passion for history, she taught college for many years and now researches, designs and writes family history books.
Ruth loves the idea of preserving old documents and making them accessible. She is looking forward to using the skills she learns during her internship to help local historical societies and churches preserve their history when they don’t have resources.
Ruth loves to rollerblade, but hasn’t found a good place to skate around here, so she’s taken up running instead. History is a hobby as well as profession. She is currently making her way through “The Railway Journey: The Industrialization of Space and Time” by Wolfgang Schivelbusch. She looks forward to reading fiction again some day, when she has a bit more time.
If she could travel anywhere, Ruth would like to go somewhere in the United States in the mid-19th-century because that was the point when a more traditional order began changing to a more modern order. “As a sociologist that really appeals to me,” Ruth said.
