This semester brings exciting changes to the Chapman Center and its staff. We have a new Research Director, new projects, and talented new interns joining the team for Fall 2018. Please help us welcome K-Staters Ethan McCary and Kaylee Kerns, Chapman Center research interns for Fall of 2018.
The research of undergraduate interns like Kaylee and Ethan is at the core of the Chapman Center’s mission. We are happy they’ve joined the team and we can’t wait to see where their research takes them.
My name is Ethan McCary…
My name is Ethan McCary. I’m from Salina, KS and am currently a junior majoring in History and minoring in Political Science.
My obsession with history stems from the exposure I had to it as a small child. Reading books from my father’s and grandfather’s shelves about Military History and listening to family stories sparked a passion. Military History is the subject that I hope to specialize in, in the future. Following graduation, I hope to attend graduate school, or pursue career opportunities.
My other interests include Security Studies, Geography and Astronomy. My hobbies include Photography, watching college sports and my beloved Borussia Dortmund, as well as collecting items and documents with historical significance. Go Cats!
My name is Kaylee Kerns…
My name is Kaylee Kerns and I am a senior in anthropology with a minor in literature studies. I have recently declared a secondary major in International Studies and I am currently in the process of earning a primary texts certificate as well.
I am extremely passionate about reading and writing, and especially uncovering mysteries of the past, which has aided me in discovering the history of the Fairchild Museum on the Kansas State campus. This fall I am ecstatic to continue my research, with the help of the Chapman Center, on the Fairchild Museum and the stories that were created within the halls of the building.
Once I graduate in May I hope to continue my education in graduate school studying material culture or something similar with the overall goal to continue research and writing.
In my spare time I play piccolo in the K-State Marching Band, dispatch for the K-State Police Department, and I am the treasurer for the Anthropology Club on campus.
