History Grad Meets with President Carter & Rosalynn Carter, Adds First Lady's Impact to Legacy

Eryn Kane, Ph.D. student in the History Department, was recently invited to the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site, where she participated in a roundtable and helped advise on updating the site, including giving more attention to Rosalynn Carter.

The visit was sponsored by the U.S. National Parks Service and the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site in Plains, GA, and both were keen on Kane and other historians' insights as the parks service is updating the museum at the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site.

One of Kane's central recommendations was that the new exhibits need to provide equal attention to Rosalynn Carter, as she is President Carter's "equal partner" both in life and in the White House.
