Tiffany Player named inaugural J. Victor and Beulah Monke Scholar

The late Dr. J. Victor Monke, a distinguished alumnus of Washington University, and his wife left a generous gift to the university to support a student whose work pertains to issues about, or the history of, Native Americans or African Americans.  Tiffany Player, doctoral student in the Department of History, has been selected as the inaugural J. Victor and Beulah Monke Scholar in the Chancellor’s Graduate Fellowship Program; her dissertation-in-progress examines "Black Women and the Politics of Slavery from the Antebellum Era through the Great Depression".
