National History Day: A Northern Light
Traveling to Columbia from Austin, Minnesota, Elizabeth Buchanan recently spent a long weekend in the Library researching a project for National History Day. A high school senior, Liz is writing a script for the individual performance category of this year's competition entitled "Turning Points in History."
Liz will portray Martha Schofield, the Quaker who founded the Schofield Normal and Industrial School in Aiken in 1869. She hopes her performance will demonstrate that the educator's actions formed a turning point in Southern African-American education. After having thoroughly researched her subject at Miss Schofield's alma mater, Swarthmore College last summer, Liz says she gleaned still more insight into her subject's personality from the manuscripts available at the South Caroliniana Library. -- Robin Copp
