Faculty note: Associate Prof. Eric Morgan appointed new editor-in-chief of ‘Voyageur’

Associate Prof. Eric J. Morgan (Democracy and Justice Studies, History) has been appointed as the new editor-in-chief of Voyageur: Northeast Wisconsin’s Historical Review. Published by the Brown County Historical Society in cooperation with the UW-Green Bay, Voyageur is a non-profit magazine dedicated to exploring the history of a 26-county area of greater northeast Wisconsin and has published two issues per year since its beginning in 1984.  Before his appointment as editor-in-chief, Morgan served as the magazine’s review editor, associate editor and member of the editorial board. Morgan replaces Associate Prof. David Voelker (Humanities, History), who served as editor-in-chief for nearly five years, editing nine issues, from Summer/Fall 2015 through Summer/Fall 2019. Voelker’s final issue as editor is a special 35th-anniversary issue of the magazine, focusing on African Americans in northeast Wisconsin, which will be published in June.
