Reclaiming Beaches for the People on the Fourth of July

School is out for many of us but there are still plenty of Marquette historians teaching summer courses and, of  course, we are using this time to push ahead with our research and publication agendas.  Andrew Kahrl posted this timely article over on HNN about access to beaches, race, class, and the story of Edward T. “Ned” Col, who championed public access to beaches dominated by the rich.  Andrew’s new book has also received some good press this summer.
