Acerca del autor (1998)

Dr. Lorle Porter, Professor Emerita and Regional Historian in Residence at Muskingum College in New Concord, Ohio has been recognized by the American Association of State and Local History as "...Southeastern Ohio's historical conscience, loyal friend, and cooperative partner in the cause of ensuring that the history of the people of this region remains at the heart of its evolving present and future." In the year 2000, The Ohio Women's Hall of Fame inducted Dr. Porter into its prestigious ranks. She was cited as having "...prevented many of Ohio's historical figures from fading quietly into oblivion...." Dr. Porter attended Notre Dame College in Cleveland, Ohio where she received her BA in Social Studies and Spanish. History claimed her interest again and she went on to Boston College in Massachusetts to earn a Masters in Latin American History. In 1965, the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque awarded her a Ph.D. in Medieval European History and Mexican History. Outstanding achievements and honor awards have made their place in Dr. Porter's illustrious career. In 2000, Dr. Porter was inducted into the Ohio Women's Hall of Fame for her contributions to preserving our history. Other honors have included awards for outstanding regional history publications and programs, service and teaching awards, and a Certificate of Commendation from the American Association of State and Local Histories (quoted in the opening paragraph of this biography). She is a nominee for inclusion in Ohio's Bicentennial Book: Profiles of Ohio Women: 1803-2003. Dr. Porter has been heavily involved in local historical restorations and projects, including the Franklin Museum, the National Road Scenic Byway Commission, the Civil War Trails Commission, and the John & Annie Glenn Historic Site and Exploration Center.
