We want to offer congratulations to Deborah Rudacille, Professor of the Practice in the English Department here at UMBC. She will be honored by the Baltimore City Historical Society at their 15th Annual Mayor's Reception and History Honors Event on October 25, 2015, for ROOTS OF STEEL, which they call "a very readable account on the rise and fall of one of Baltimore's great industrial enterprises . . . a fine study." Congratulations on the achievement.
