Research Journal 25 Apr 11

I’ve been so busy with work for other classes that I haven’t spent much time working on my paper. I was trying to arrange a fifth interview, with a housekeeper in Monroe, but it didn’t work out soon enough. Too bad—she might have been a really interesting person to talk to. I wish I had known to talk to her earlier on. Oh well, I think I have plenty to work with. I’ll spend this week finishing up indexes and transcriptions, and working on the final paper. I don’t think I’ve found out exactly what I thought I would, but it’s all useful and I think writing the paper will help me think through everything. Not much left to do but get to work.

The WDP works towards developing a better understanding of Williamsburg by bringing together individuals, local groups, Colonial Williamsburg, and the College of William & Mary.
