August 29 - And The Guest Author Is . . .
I have known Linda for years and admired her many collections of old photographs. In this week's Friday From The Collectors Linda will introduce us to how she got started collecting those photographs and give us a glimpse of her most treasured collection.In 2005 Linda graduated from the University of Washington Extension Certificate Program in Genealogy and Family History, a nine month course approved by the History Department of the University. (This unique program not only gives you skills and tools to unearth new information about your ancestors, but also teaches you to relate that information to the political, economic, and social changes and forces that shaped the community and time in which they lived.)
Linda is one of the driving forces behind the program's Alumni Association and is also a member of the University of Washington's advisory board for the Genealogy and Family History program. As a board member she designs, reviews and updates the program to meet the evolving demands of the field of genealogy and family history.
Linda has also participated in the Seattle Museum of History and Industry's Nearby History - A Seminar for Researchers and Writers. A nationally acclaimed workshop, Nearby History is an intensive 10-session seminar where participants work on a written product – short story, article, website, screen play or curriculum.
In 2001 Linda graduated Magna Cum Laude from Seattle University School of Law and received the CALI Excellence For The Future Awards in Research and Writing, Federal Indian Law, and Criminal Law. She was the recipient of the 2000 National Balfour Scholarship Award from the International Legal Fraternity of Phi Delta Phi. The International Legal Fraternity of Phi Delta Phi was established in 1869 to promote the highest standard of ethics and professionalism in the law.
During her third year in law school, Linda had the privilege of serving as an Extern in the Chambers of Justice Faith Ireland of the Washington State Supreme Court.
Currently, Linda is an LL.M. Candidate in Environmental and Natural Resources Law with a focus in Federal Indian Law at Lewis and Clark Law School, Portland, Oregon.
