By Taylor Bye, Class of 2012

I undertook this website as an independent study during the spring semester of my Senior year at Dickinson College. I first developed an interest in Daniel Read Anthony in the summer of 2011 as an intern at the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum in Adams, MA. This website is meant to give D.R. Anthony a greater profile in American History than he has had to this point. He was an exceptional man, and it has been my privilege to study him.

I have been involved in blogging since the spring of 2011 and hope to continue that after graduation. I believe that Web 2.0 tools are the future for institutions in the field of Public History such as museums and historical societies.

I am a May 2012 graduate of Dickinson College with a B.A. in American History. My primary interests are American Frontier history, Automotive history, and American architectural history. Besides this work, I also wrote my senior thesis on the cultural history of high-performance auto advertising in America between 1964 and 1972.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you have found D.R. Anthony’s story as compelling as I do.

Sincerely, Taylor Bye
