Dr. William Nancarrow received a fellowship from the Marion and Jasper Whiting Foundation. These travel awards enable teachers at New England Colleges and Universities to travel abroad or domestically with a focus on bringing these academic experiences back to their classrooms.
Dr. Nancarrow will travel to the San Francisco Maritime National History Park and Archive in June 2016 to collect material and artifacts in support of his Integrated Liberal Studies course for future teachers: Global Cultural Exchange through Voyages in the Age of Sail.
