In Spring 2016, students in Professor Alison Tracy Hale’s Honors 401 class at the University of Puget Sound (Tacoma, WA) created the “Now, Mr. Lincoln?” site based on their work with material from the university’s archives. Working with Archivist and Special Collections Librarian Katie Henningsen, students explored documents related to a 1968 campaign, supported by key university figures, to provide seed money for local African American business owners. With support from Peggy Burge, Coordinator of Teaching, Learning, and Digital Humanities, students analyzed and contextualized these materials with attention paid to local and national history, campus race relations, and demographic data. They utilized a range of digital tools–HistoryPin, Social Explorer, TimelineJS, and Scalar–to introduce their findings to the larger community: http://scalar.usc.edu/works/now-mr-lincoln/index
