The Story Behind “Victor’s Desk”

If you’ve been in the History Department’s “new” office (perhaps now that we’ve occupied the space for more than a year, it’s less the “new” office than just the “office”), you’ve no doubt noticed the big, oak, roll-top desk that dominates the room.  We display new books and articles by current faculty and former and current graduate students (not to mention the trophy commemorating the winner of our annual kickball game between students and faculty).  But the desk has a long and notable history of its own–and you can read about it in this new story on Marquette’s website: https://medium.com/marquette-university-arts-sciences/the-greatest-american-you-ve-never-heard-of-40375ff64a64  Enjoy!
