Description, Abstract, or Artist's Statement

The series of papers “Augustana Seniors Fall 1885” represent the work of students in FYI 103 Practical Genealogy, taught by me in the spring term of the 2018–2019 academic year. The course is part of a three-term sequence of First Year Inquiry courses that all first-year students at Augustana take. The students in my class worked in small teams to investigate the family history and genealogy of an Augustana alum. The alums were taken from the members of the senior class as listed in the Augustana College catalog of 1885–1886. The resulting papers were part of the requirements of the course.
