Klekar receives Fellowship
Cynthia Klekar is the recipient of the Paula Backscheider Archival Fellowship Travel Award. The award is one of five highly competitive travel fellowships awarded by the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies. It will support a stay in Chicago so that Cynthia may work with the Newberry Library’s rare documents collection, specifically with transcripts of East India Trading Company voyages to Canton China from 1660-1688.
