My name is Tim Sheehan. I created this website to share various papers and pathfinders I have authored. This site has not been peer-reviewed. All are for your review. Should you find that I have made any mistakes, please feel free to contact me via e-mail. I assure you that I have made every effort to properly cite my sources.
I had some great history teachers in high school who made classes fun and educational. Their enthusiasm sparked my interest in history. However, I never envisioned myself embracing historical research. I aspired to be either a writer of fiction, a stockbroker, or a bartender. Those were the crossroads I considered traveling upon my high school graduation.
I decided to attend Marist College in Poughkeepsie NY. I obtained a great education from Marist. There, I caught the history bug. Researching and writing history papers became my obsession. After I graduated from Marist, I decided to obtain a Master of Arts in History.
I attended Providence College. I also worked at the American Antiquarian Society in order to make ends meet. AAS was a great place to work. I had access to an amazing wealth of history sources, allowing me to get comfortable in the historical research process. I also benefited from graduate school at PC. My craft in writing scholarly research papers slowly but surely developed.
After I graduated from Providence, I realized that working in libraries suited me best. I love helping people find information. I earned a degree from Simmons College Graduate School of Library and Information Science in Boston. In my spare time, I continue to read and write about history. It may sound like work to some, but it is pure enjoyment to me. I am a history nut!
I hope you enjoy my work. More papers will appear over the years. Please feel free to contact/follow me via e-mail, Facebook, LinkedIn, Medium, or Twitter should you have any questions/comments.
