Laura Zeccardi

I am very sad to report that Laura Zeccardi, who graduated from the APH Program in Fall 2008 and most recently had been working at the Minnesota Historical Society, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday after a very brief illness. Everyone who knew Laura will remember her wonderful personality, easygoing manner, and infectious enthusiasm for public history. She was fun to be around and made an effortless transition from growing up in Minnesota to life in New York City. She will be deeply missed, and I am attaching a link to a post from the Minnesota Historical Society that speaks a bit more about her life and work there. http://education.mnhs.org/historyday/news/announcements/history-day-staffer-laura-zeccardi-passes-away
