Ph.D. History Candidate, Princeton University

It is no exaggeration to say that I am very lucky we met. As a PhD candidate with no experience in archival research, you shaped both my experience at the Archive, as well as my current research efforts. Not only did you offer critical insight as an experienced researcher, but you also took time away from your own efforts to introduce me to people and explain the inner workings of NARA II. Because of your expertise and generosity, I was able to navigate the body of documentary records within the National Archives and find the information I was looking for. Importantly, your assistance on my first day at NARAII allowed me to find the materials necessary to convince my committee that I had a viable dissertation -I will also note that your tutelage allowed me to teach a cohort of PhD-candidates here at Princeton how to conduct research at the Archives. Thank you.

Author at Air War Publications

I've known Heather since 2013 through her work with The World War II History Project. In that time she has been an incredibly diligent military and oral historian, going to great lengths to contact and meet with surviving veterans of the Second World War. Given how few of those men and women remain, the work she is doing is of immense value to scholars of that conflict. She has demonstrated an excellent ability to track down these service personnel and conduct fascinating and revealing interviews with them. Her work ethic is impressive, and it's been a pleasure to help her with The World War II History Project.
