Robert L. Daugherty, Ph.D., the tenth editor of Ohio History, retired August 8, 2003. Bob, a native of West Virginia, earned his undergraduate and master’s degrees from West Virginia University and his doctorate in military history from The Ohio State University in 1974. He served in the United States Army and was a member of the history faculties of Fairmont State College and Temple University. In 1992 he published Weathering the Peace: The Ohio National Guard in the Interwar Years, 1919-1940 (Wright State University Press). Bob began his tenure with Ohio History in 1978. His efforts toward improving the journal and upholding its academic standards will long be appreciated. We join colleagues around the state in wishing Bob well.

The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission invites applications for its 2004-2005 Scholars in Residence Program, including applications for collaborative residencies. The Scholars in Residence program provides support for up to three months of full-time research and study in manuscript and artifact collection maintained by and Commission facility, including the Pennsylvania State Archives, The State Museum of Pennsylvania, and twenty-six historic sites and museums around the state. Collaborative residencies fund research that relates to the interpretive mission and advances the programmatic goals of any PHMC program or facility, including the agency’s history sites and museums. A collaborative residency proposal must be filed jointly by the interested scholar and host program/facility. Residency programs are open to all who are conducting research on Pennsylvania history, including academic scholars, public sector history professionals, independent scholars, graduate students, educators, writers, filmmakers, and others. Residencies are available for four to twelve weeks between May 1, 2004, and April 30, 2005, at the rate of $1,500 per month. However, because both the Pennsylvania State Archives and the State Museum of Pennsylvania will be undergoing extensive renovations during 2004-2005, archival collections may only be available through September 2004; certain artifact collections will not be available for study at all during the 2004-2005 residency period. Deadline for application is January 16, 2004. Complete information and application materials are available at the PHMC web site: www.phmc.state.pa.us.
