Humans of the History Department: Professor James LaGrand

dscn0949-2James LaGrand, Professor of American History

“I grew up in Ottawa, Canada, right on the border of Quebec, and attended a French immersion school. History was taught in a very impassioned way. My first vivid encounter with history that I can remember is learning about the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, where the English and the French fought over control of Canada. My teacher, Mademoiselle Levesque, could not get through the story without crying.”
