Graduating senior Daniel Howlett has conducted groundbreaking research on the Salem Witch Trials over more than three years of work. His history honors thesis, "Salem Networks," is a unique website rather than a research paper. He has graphed the residents of Salem and their interactions with one another through meticulous study of all known Salem court records from 1692 to 1693. He has identified 1,460 people and 9,870 unique relationships.
Daniel will continue his Salem studies and degree by joining George Mason University's M.A. program in History this fall. His website, Salem Networks, is now live. We encourage everyone to check out Daniel's amazing work!
