Project Specialists

Linda Arnold is a specialist in Mexican history. As a professor of history at Virginia Tech, she developed this transcription project to introduce students at Virginia Tech to the vast microfilm newspaper resources available for the study of history, specifically the history of the Mexican-American War, and help students begin to think about how new technologies might transform the landscape of research.

Michael Scarborough is a computer scientist who currently resides in Richmond, Virginia. He developed the origiinal search tool for this project as part of his M.S. course work in Computer Science at Virginia Tech and has continued to refine that tool for students and researchers.
