IUP History graduate Samuel Richards ('04) recently was awarded an "honorable mention" during the Historical Society of the Episcopal Church's Annual Meeting for his article on Edward Colston. 

His article, “Historical Revision in Church: Re-examining the ‘Saint’ Edward Colston,” was published in the September 2020 issue of the Anglican and Episcopal History, and investigates the legacy of a philanthropist, enslaver, and High Anglican Edward Colston who lived from 1636 to 1721. It was noted for its "excellent and timely research."
