HI 2401: Environmental History: Primary Sources

Professor Thomas B. Robertson

Primary Sources

Original texts, photographs, drawings, maps and other primary source materials will improve your place paper dramatically. 

Use resources from your place: people, local libraries, local newspapers, local historical societies, state historical societies.

Read the landscape: Walk through and around the place you are researching. Talk to people and take some pictures. What do you see? Are there legacies of earlier periods?
