The Cornell Historical Society is a vibrant and intellectually engaged undergraduate organization that continues to inspire and delight students and faculty with its passion for historical inquiry. This year marks the publication of the organization’s sixth edition of its journal, Ezra’s Archives. The journal features five articles selected from over sixty submissions gathered in the fall. Chosen contributors are students at universities around the country, from Washington to Minnesota to Michigan to North Carolina, and range in themes from gun control to Polish art to Native American resistance.

In addition to publishing Ezra’s Archives, the Society also ran its peer advising program, which gives incoming first-year students with an interest in history a chance to receive guidance from more advanced students. This year’s CHS events included dinner discussions at Becker House with History professors Paul Friedland (early modern France) and Claudia Verhoeven (imperial Russia), a graduate student panel for undergraduates to learn about graduate school, and a tour of the rare manuscripts library. CHS members also coordinated attending lectures and dinners to offer informal venues for students interested in history to come together.
