The Chapman Center for Rural Studies is proud to announce two interns in a row who were selected to present their research at “Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol.”
On February 12, former Chapman Center intern Jessica Wheeler presented her study of the vanished town of Chetolah, Kansas, in Ellis County. And last year in Topeka, former intern and undergraduate research assistant Angela Schnee presented her research and original map of “The Chinese Laundries of Wichita”. Angela, who graduated spring, 2013, is now Director of GIS Systems for Russell County, Kansas. Jessica, a senior majoring in biochemistry, is headed for law school after graduation.
Jessica is also the author of a fascinating history slide-show, “On the Track to Settlement,” posted in our multi-media collection. And Angela researched and wrote a history of the lost community of Gatesville Siding in Clay County.
