Jeffrey Makala, a PhD candidate, received fellowship from the Library Company of Philadelphia
Jeffrey Makala, a PhD candidate in English, received a short-term fellowship administered from the Library Company of Philadelphia, jointly to the LCP and the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, the William Reese Fellowship in American Bibliography, for 2014.
Professor David Shields is Makala's advisor and committee chair. Makala is also Librarian for Special Collections Instruction & Outreach Irvin Department of Rare Books and Special Collections in the Ernest F. Hollings Special Collections Library.
This fellowship will enable Makala to spend a month in Philadelphia later this fall working at both places, primarily looking at antebellum American printers’, publishers’, and type founders’ records. His project has the same working title as his dissertation: “Print on Demand: Stereotyping and Electrotyping in the United States Printing Trades, 1812-1845.”
