Inside our November/December issue

For our November/December cover story, timed both with this year’s election and the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, we spoke with Penn State historian Cathleen Cahill, whose new book examines the women of color who played a prominent role in the movement for women’s suffrage. Recasting the Vote highlights the work of six women—Native American, Chinese, Latina, and Black—to tell the broader story of women of color who fought for the right to vote. Our interview with Cahill begins on p. 40.

Our new issue also highlights the work of former Penn State president Milton Eisenhower, best known in history as an influential advisor to his brother Dwight, but who spent the best years of his career as a university president—including a transformational tenure at Penn State as the institution transitioned from college to university. Our feature on Eisenhower begins on p. 32.

And we take you inside the new Student Veteran Center at University Park. Located in a $4 million renovated space on the first floor of Ritenour Building, the center houses both the Office of Veterans Programs, which processes GI Bill benefits and supports military students at University Park, and the Office of Veterans Affairs and Services, which oversees university-wide military service-related events and advocacy efforts. But the center also serves as a 24/7 gathering space for military-affiliated students enrolled at University Park. Our look at the new space begins on p. 48.

Also, meet Anne Puchalsky, a sophomore whose conservation work led to the Eastern hellbender being declared Pennsylvania’s state amphibian (p. 16); read about ultrarunner Lauren Wilke’s fight against COVID-19 (p. 27); and learn NFL Network reporter Kimberly Jones’s favorite memory from her undergraduate days at Penn State (p. 19).

It’s all in our Noveber/December issue, arriving in mailboxes soon.
