RIP, Ethan A. Schmidt

Published:September 14, 2015 by Brendan Wolfe


A historian of American history, including Virginia Indians, was shot and killed today in his office at Delta State University, in Cleveland, Mississippi. We don’t know more about this tragic event than what we’ve read in the paper. But Ethan A. Schmidt wrote about Virginia, thanked some of our friends and colleagues in his first book, and is exactly the sort of scholar we often have writing for us.

Our condolences go to his friends and family.
