Examing a Map at Grand Portage

PublicHistory.Media is a blog on the topic of new media for collecting, sharing, and making use of the past. I created this blog as part of the Public History New Media graduate course at Loyola University Chicago in Spring 2016.

About The Author

My name is Joshua Wachuta. I’m a PhD student of U.S. and Public History at Loyola University Chicago. In the past I’ve worked as a public historian at the Wisconsin Historical Society and the National Park Service. I’m also an enthusiast for free/libre software and its usefulness in creating and sharing history media. I’ve used open source tools to help develop websites for the Fort Crawford Museum and the Rogers Park / West Ridge Historical Society. You can learn a bit more about me at my profile.
