Hanover College History Department

Welcome to the Hanover College History Department!

This spring, alumni-professors Ruth Turner and Steve Ellis helped us commemorate the Kent State shootings by recounting Hanover students’ reactions in 1970. Prof. Nancy Rodgers, an eyewitness to the shootings, gave an interview about her experiences

The history department takes pride in our students' successes. We're always glad for you to stop by our offices or email us.
