The Presbyterian Homes of Evanston invites applications from area history writers for its centennial history book project. The selected writer will compose a research based book length social history of the Presbyterian Homes that will be accessible to a broad community audience. The work will draw from materials in the organizationís archives and community interviews to illustrate the progression of the Presbyterian Homes over the past 100 years. Possible subjects of interest within the work include the history of the institutionís care for the elderly, the relationship between the organization and the Presbyterian Church, biographical sketches of notable figures, and the diversification and expansion of the organizationís mission and population. The position will be funded with a generous stipend paid incrementally by progress, and the organization anticipates a publication date in 2006.
For further information about the project, please contact the project director, Dr. Wallace Moore, at (847) 866-1640.
