Library Award for Undergraduate Research受賞者

2016年春学期にメイヨー・オーラル・ヒストリーズのインターンをした学部生 Michelle Glazerが、今年のLibrary Award for Undergraduate Researchを受賞しました。Library Award for Undergraduate Researchは、メリーランド大学図書館Maryland Center for Undergraduate Research 及び Maryland’s iSchool の共催で、学部生の優れたリサーチペーパーを毎年表彰しています。

Michelleのリサーチペーパータイトルは「Americans on the Defense Team in the Tokyo War Crimes Tribunal, 1946 – 1948: Understanding the Mentality Behind Defending the “Enemy”」です。メイヨー・オーラル・ヒストリーズを多数引用しています。

Michelleは、Library Awardのアプリケーション・エッセイにて、プランゲ文庫でのインターンシップが今回のリサーチペーパーのアイデアの元になったことを述べています。次に一部引用します。

“For the Spring 2016 semester, I accepted an internship with the Gordon W. Prange Collection. At the internship, I was tasked with writing interviewee biographies for oral histories from Americans in Occupied Japan for those with the last names J through Z. When I got to W, one person in particular stood out. Carrington Williams was a defense lawyer during the International Military Tribunal for the Far East (IMTFE). As I listened to him talk about his experience, I realized that he, an American, was discussing defending Japanese war criminals. I was fascinated. “
