The Jacquelyn Dowd Hall Summer Research Fellowship
On September 20th, 2014, over 120 people gathered at UNC to celebrate and honor the legacy of SOHP’s founding director, Jacquelyn Dowd Hall, as she retires from the Department of History. Jacquelyn’s scholarship and mentorship have truly transformed the profession. That kind of gathering comes once in a generation, and the mutual gratitude between Jacquelyn and her students and colleagues was palpable.
To honor Jacquelyn in a permanent way, three of her students, Natalie Fousekis, Jim Leloudis, and Brent D. Glass are spearheading an effort to raise $60,000 to endow the Jacquelyn Dowd Hall Summer Research Fellowship Fund. The Hall Fund will provide an annual summer award to a graduate student to support his or her research in oral history. SOHP’s acting director, Renée Alexander Craft, and SOHP’s home, the Center for the Study of the American South at UNC, are enthusiastically supporting this fundraising effort.
Already, Jacquelyn’s friends and former students have raised $33,000 towards our goal. We are grateful to everyone who has provided lead gifts, demonstrating appreciation for Jacquelyn and support of SOHP.

Thank you for honoring Jacquelyn and her transformative influence on our lives and work by helping us support future innovative scholars.
