|Dr. Joseph Rishel|
We weren't kidding when we said that we have some pretty amazing scholars in our department. Dr. Rishel is no exception. A master of Pittsburgh's history (as well as all things American history), he's also one of the most down-to-earth, knowledgeable, and all-around swell guys we know.
He's also actively involved in the community. This Friday, February 25, 2011, Dr. Rishel will be speaking at Tom Baker's Morning Mix, which educates and inspires individuals in Western PA while also serving as a useful monthly networking resource. Hosted by Tom Baker and Vivian Lee Croft (a Duquesne University graduate and former student aide here in the History Department), the Pittsburgh Morning Mix is an opportunity to learn from visionary leaders who will speak about their experiences within the business, non-profit, government, and educational sectors.
