The Bethel University Library has made its decision, and two of our history majors are winners in its annual library research competition. Larissa Thune won second place for her paper, “The Hutterian Brethren in South Dakota: The Impact of the American Frontier on an Ethnic-Religious, Immigrant Community, 1874-1945,” and Joel McDougall won third place for his paper, “Will the Real Sozheitsyn Please Stand Up?: An American Response to the Works of Alexander Sozhenitsyn: 1953-1978.” Congratulations!
Our majors have done well in this competition since it began in 2010. Taylor Ferda took first place in 2010, and Eric Magnuson was the runner-up in 2011.
