Prof. Robert Dewey Elected a Fellow of Britain's Royal Historical Society

Robert Dewey (pictured), assistant professor of history at DePauw University, has been elected a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society (RHS). Dr. Dewey is being honored for his recently published book, British National Identity and Opposition to Membership of Europe, 1961-63: The Anti-Marketeers.

Founded in 1868, the Society received its Royal Charter from Queen Victoria after a campaign by Henry Austin Bruce, Lord Aberdare. According to its Web site, the RHS "remains the foremost society in Great Britain promoting and defending the scholarly study of the past." Election to fellowship status is conferred on those who have made "an original contribution to historical scholarship in the form of significant published work."
