History doctoral student Alexander Lovelace received the John Cady Graduate Fellowship from Ohio University for the 2018-19 academic year. The award is one of five named competitive fellowships awarded by the Graduate College and for which any nominated OHIO graduate student is eligible.

“Your project, ‘Total Coverage: How Media Shaped Command Decisions during WWII,’ affirms the excellence in research and creative activity currently underway at Ohio University,” wrote Dr. David Koonce, Associate Dean of the Graduate College.

The fellowship includes a$15,000 stipend and a full tuition scholarship.

“Alex has moved through the doctoral program to this point with remarkable speed,” said Dr. Ingo Trauschweizer, Associate Professor of History and Director of the Contemporary History Institute. “He’s an excellent writer and a diligent researcher. Even before he started at OHIO, he had an article placed in Journalism History (edited in OHIO’s Scripps School of Journalism), and he has developed a dissertation that allows him to build on the strengths in history and journalism at Ohio.

“He’s also getting attention outside of the university. Just a few days ago he learned that he won a research grant from the Army (the General and Mrs. Matthew B. Ridgway Grant). There’s usually a lot of national and even international competition,” added Trauschweizer, who is Lovelace’s dissertation supervisor.

Lovelace previously earned the Graduate Associate Outstanding Teaching Award from Ohio University in 2016.

His research fields of concentration are U.S. military history, U.S. political history, and modern Europe and the British Empire.

Lovelace discussed “The Pen being Mightier than the Sword: The Press Strategy of The Normandy Campaign” at the 2017 History Graduate Student Conference. At the 2015 conference he presented “Ike’s Troubleshooter.”
