ATHENS —

“I totally respected her intellect. She was very sharp, very quick on the uptake,” he said. “We had two days worth of conversations, and by the end of it I had tremendous respect for her. I get the sense that with her intelligence and charisma, she probably would have been successful at whatever she wanted to do.”

Haynes is back in the classroom this fall, teaching U.S. and Native American history to undergraduate students at UGA. He enjoys all facets of being a historian—teaching, researching and writing.

“I genuinely enjoy being in the classroom,” he said. “I also love getting lost in the archives for hours, and one of my favorite things to do is to sit down and write and edit and rewrite. One of my students told me that, after taking my class, she understood that good writing is good rewriting. It was one of the best compliments I’ve ever gotten from a student.”
