Special Note (9/14/15):

The Department of History at Texas Tech University is mourning the loss of our friend and former colleague, Dr. Ethan Schmidt, Assistant Professor of History at Delta State University. Dr. Schmidt was a gifted and passionate teacher, an exciting scholar, and a good friend. More importantly, he was an incredibly loving husband and father. He will be deeply missed.

Our department is in the process of establishing an undergraduate scholarship in memory of Dr. Schmidt's contributions to Texas Tech University. Please contact our department if you are interested in donating to that scholarship fund. More detailed information will be provided in the coming weeks on precisely how to make those donations.
