Trautman-Mosher’s thesis, “Various and Sundrys for the Indians: The Creation of an Anglo-Abenaki Middle Ground at Fort Richmond, Maine, 1720-1755,” built upon archaeological work (sponsored primarily by the Maine Historic Preservation Commission), he has done for the past several summers. His defense took place in front of thesis adviser Vivian Bruce Conger and committee members Michael Trotti and Jonathan Ablard.

Congratulations to all the students and faculty sponsors who participated in the Symposium!
The following is a list of those students who won awards at the Symposium.
Recipients of this year's awards were selected through a two-step process. The first step was to submit an abstract for award in early March. The abstracts were separated into groups according to areas of research and discipline. Each abstract was judged by at least two judges and the judges determined the finalists from each group.
The finalists where then scheduled to present at finalist sessions during the Whalen Symposium. Again, the finalists presentations were judged by at least two judges and the judges then determined the award winners.
Congratulations to all of the winners on a job well done!
Several weeks ago Conger was interviewed by Liz Covart for Ben Franklin's World: A Podcast About Early American History. The episode recently went live and is available for download at http://www.benfranklinsworld.com/
