PHI ALPHA PHI HONORS ODU PROFESSOR AND STUDENTS

Three members of Old Dominion University's Theta-Xi chapter of the national history honors society Phi Alpha Theta presented papers at the society's
2006 biennial convention last month in Philadelphia. Each paper received positive comments from faculty who served as moderators of the respective
panels and stimulated lively discussions. The students and the titles of their presentations are:

• Lisa M. Castellanos, "The Quaker Transition: From Slaveholders to Abolitionists";
• John Tyler, "A Study in Land Use: The Evolution of Newport News (Va.) Park"; and
• Annette Williams, "The Nazi Medical Experiments."

At the convention's presidential banquet, James R. Sweeney, associate professor of history, was one of three recipients of the society's first
Faculty Advisor Award. He has served as adviser of the ODU chapter since 1974.
