Demaree Receives Award

Recent graduate David Demaree is the recipient of an IUP Outstanding Student Research Award. On April 4, 2011 David was honored for his thesis “A Gentleman of Substance: Abraham Lincoln and Changing Perceptions About Presidential Appearance and Character.”

The University noted that “David Demaree had to become familiar with the enormous amount of published literature on Lincoln, the American presidency, antebellum and Civil War political history, and the growing scholarship on nineteenth-century masculinary and morals for his thesis project. Even more impressive, however, was his use of the available primary sources, including newspapers and periodicals, which provided insight on popular attitudes toward Lincoln at the local, regional, and national levels. Demaree’s research has already resulted in the publication of a book chapter.”

Dr. Joseph Mannard was his thesis advisor.
