Bio

Dr. Ellen Gruber Garvey researches and writes on MEDIA of the late 19th, early 20th centuries, chiefly MAGAZINES, and what their readers did with them. Her prizewinning book on the SCRAPBOOKS they made from their reading offers unexpected views of scrapbooks, particularly scrapbooks made by African Americans, suffragists, and men. She has written and spoken extensively on the FREDOOM WOMEN found in BICYCLING in the 1890s, and why it matters now. Dr. Garvey is currently working on projects on WHITE SUPREMACIST stories about SLAVE SHIPS. She is also researching the TRIANGLE FACTORY FIRE and IMMIGRATION in the early 20th century.

Her PhD is from the University of Pennsylvania, and her MA is from the University of Massachusetts.
