Hello! My name is Dan Snow. I am currently a junior working on a BA in History at Loyola University Chicago. As a student in Loyola’s inaugural Ramonat Seminar, I will be studying the roles and legacies of Catholic immigrants to Chicago in the 1800s. My blog is one of many perspectives from this class: feel free to visit other students’ blogs and learn more about our class here.

Update (6-24-16): As an added note, I would like to point out that my paper won the inaugural Susan Ramonat Prize for Scholarly Excellence, and that this very blog won the Loyola History Department’s annual blogging contest. A big thanks to Dr. Roberts and Susan Ramonat!

Update (8-30-16): If you find yourself captivated by what you have read here, feel free to continue the adventure at The New Past, another fantastic blog written for a Loyola course that looks at public history and digital media.
