Dr. Kristine Alexander, who earned her PhD in the Graduate History Program in November 2010, has won the Governor General's Gold Medal in Graduate Studies at York! Dr. Alexander's dissertation, entitled "The Girl Guide movement, Imperialism and Internationalism in Interwar England, Canada and India," was supervised by Professor Bettina Bradbury. Currently holding as SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Western Ontario, Dr. Alexander is continuing her research on children, this time in World War I. She excelled at every level of her education, winning a long list of prizes along the way and is richly deserving of this honour. Congratulations Kristine!
