Edythe Ann Quinn, Ph.D.
Hartwick College Professor of History and History Department Chair Edythe Ann Quinn, Ph.D. was awarded a prestigious Gilder Lehrman Institute Fellowship in 2007. The fellowship—one of only 11 awarded to senior scholars—allowed Quinn to conduct an extensive study of documents at the New York Historical Society. Quinn’s research concerns The Hills, an African-American community that thrived in Westchester County from 1790 through 1925. In 2005, Quinn was selected to participate in a seminar on American History at the Gilder-Lehrman Institute of American History at Harvard University.
