Mother Goose

The Brooke and Carol Peirce Center for Undergraduate Research in Special Collections is pleased to announce the Spring 2010 Undergraduate Research Fellows: Oliver Cole ’10, Lucie Ferguson ’10, Anne McLaughlin ’10, and Maura Roth-Gormley ’10. The fellows will receive stipends of $500 to $1,000 to conduct research on primary sources and documentary evidence in Goucher’s Special Collections and Archives.

Cole and McLaughlin will be researching a mysterious collection of rare maps dating from the 17th century and creating an online exhibit of digitized images from the maps.

Ferguson, an art major, will be examining the illustrations found in different editions of Mother Goose rhymes to create her own artistic renderings of the verses.

Roth-Gormley will investigate a diverse collection of archival materials on co-education at Goucher College and conduct oral histories for a research paper that will be her senior thesis.
