Hilary Goodnow, Public History Alumna, publishes article in Plimoth Life

Hilary Goodnow, an onsite interpreter at the Plimoth Plantation, graduated with a Public History MA from NC State in 2013. On the Mayflower II, she plays Alice Rigsdale, and in the 17th century English village, she plays Mary Warren. Hilary wrote several pieces for Plimoth Life, including a “From the Record” feature titled “Ordinary People,” which is an article about women running ordinaries in Plymouth Colony, published in the magazine’s women’s history issue (Vol. 13, No. 1 2014). As Editorial Assistant and Contributor, Hilary used objects and document analysis to show how historians interpret the past when writing the feature. “That was my favorite part,” Hilary said. Congratulations, Hilary!
