- About Me
I am a Professor of History at Collin College in Plano, TX. I have a Ph.D. in U.S. history from Texas A&M University (2017).
I study the woman suffrage movement in Texas from 1917 to 1923 focusing on how the successes and failures of the movement affected the voting rights of other groups including legal resident aliens/Mexican and German immigrants, servicemen, WWI veterans, Mexican Americans and black Texans. As part of this research I also look into changes to the voting system including the beginning of absentee balloting in the U.S. and the run-off primary in Texas.
