Student Spotlight: Keegan Smith-Nichols ’17

For his third co-op, Keegan Smith-Nichols ’17 finds himself commuting to the quaint town of Wilmington, Ohio for his position at the Peace Resource Center of Wilmington College. He spends his time “working in the archive, which houses the Hiroshima/Nagasaki Memorial Collection and the Barbara Reynolds papers.” Keegan has been “[focused] on three major projects: applying for a grant to preserve a collection of historic 16mm films, organizing the information available about the archive, and writing an independent scholarly research article to eventually be submitted to an academic journal.” Keegan is actively working towards the preservation of history, generating new research material and experiencing first hand what working inside an archive, filled with history, is all about. Way to go, Keegan!
