This blog is still on its winter vacation, but I have good news to report. Dr. Michael Creswell, who wrote a "guest column" for "In the Service of Clio" back on April 16, 2009 in Blog VI has had that essay published in the American Historical Association's newsletter, Perspectives on History. His article "Navigating the Graduate Admissions Process" is in the December 2009 issue. For those of you you who are not AHA members, the article version of this essay can be accessed at: http://www.historians.org/Perspectives/issues/2009/0912/0912gra1.cfm.
Creswell's success in getting published in this widely consulted forum reflects well on this blog, and I believe a number of other essays that first appeared on "In the Service of Clio" will eventually find publication in other print outlets.
