Kathryn Walbert: SOHP Associate
Dr. Kathy Walbert, who recently received her Ph.D.
in the Dept. of History at UNC-CH, has been affiliated with the SOHP since
1992. In her dissertation, she focused on female teachers in the mid-19th
century South; in her master's thesis, she described the experiences of
women who played industrial league basketball in Southern textile mills
from the 1930s through the 1950s, drawing upon interviews with former
players. As an SOHP staff member, Walbert developed an exhibit for the
university's Bicentennial Celebration, led a project on the oral history
of UNC-CH, conducted numerous interviews, and provided dozens of oral
history workshops to university classes, public schools, and community
groups. She is currently teaching in the Dept. of History and serving
as Project Coordinator for the June 2001 Teachers'
Institute, which is co-sponsored by the SOHP and the North Carolina
