Elsie Froment, Ph.D.

Director of Research

Research Professor

 

Elsie brings her inquisitive mind to her life-long love of learning and research. She searches for qualified authors to write on particular topics, though she herself is most qualified in women's studies and the history of American politics. Elsie is genuine, thoughtful and almost always smiling. If you're lucky, you'll be around when she brings in her homemade baking. Her kids and grandkids certainly appreciate it.
