About Me

Hayden McDaniel received her Ph.D. from the University of Southern Mississippi (2019) and is currently an Education Curator at the Alabama Department of Archives and History.  Her dissertation research focused on post-World War II agricultural policy, specifically on changes to the southern peanut industry.  Hayden is interested in southern politics, public history education, oral history, and civil rights. Her next project, in anticipation of the centennial of women’s suffrage, focuses on writer, newspaper editor, socialite, and suffragist, Scottie McKenzie Frasier, who did her work in Hayden’s hometown of Dothan, Alabama.
