Welcome to
the Loyola University
Student Historical Journal

In 1966, in an effort to recognize outstanding student research and writing, the Department of History and the Loyola University Student Historical Association began publication of The Loyola University Student Historical Journal.  Once established in the 70s, Pi Chi Chapter of  Phi Alpha Theta, the international history honor society, joined the effort.  It is Loyola's oldest journal devoted to publishing undergraduate research, and also the University's first journal to go on-line, though print editions will continue to appear.

Each spring, the student editorial staff and the faculty of the Department of History choose the very best student papers submitted in that academic year to appear in the Journal.  In addition, the best Honors/Senior Thesis and the best Semester Research Paper are singled out for the department's writing award.  Competition is not restricted to history majors, but is open to all  undergraduates at Loyola who have written a history research paper.

If you have written a history research paper that you would like to have considered, please submit it to Dr. David Moore, Department Chair, (426 Bobet Hall), before the end of the term.


The contents of the site are ©1998-9 by the Department of History, Loyola University New Orleans.  These papers may be accessed and used freely for non-profit, educational purposes, so long as proper acknowledgment is made of the author of the paper and a full citation is provided recognizing the Department of History, Loyola University as the publisher.
