Research very rarely moves in a linear fashion. On Friday, intrigued by a document I had found, I returned to a topic that my advisor had suggested during my first weeks of graduate school. As I leafed through the card catalog the shape of a potential project quickly became apparent and a fascinating story began to emerge. After a fatiguing week, the excitement of glimpsing new possibilities reminded me why I chose to pursue history.
