Madeline Berry

Agricultural History Society Assistant


I am a PhD student from Altoona, Pennsylvania. I study American History, with a focus on U.S. Environmental History and the distance running boom of the 1970s. More specifically, I am interested in the interactions between the natural world and long distance runners, and what this says about conceptions of space, class, consumption, and the modern U.S. environmental movement.
