History graduate student Carrie Alexander to work for the Delta Protection Commission

Carrie Alexander has been hired to manage the Delta Protection Commission's historical and cultural archives.

The Delta Protection Commission, a California state agency, has recruited Carrie Alexander, a UC Davis History Ph.D. candidate to manage a new initiative collecting historical and cultural sources throughout the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. The project aims to assemble sources from the pre-colonial period to the present that represent the region’s rich heritage. The Commission intends to facilitate publication of the sources as an anthology that can be used in K-12 and college classrooms as well as to increase public awareness of the Delta as a distinct and significant cultural region. For more information on the project, and to share ideas for sources that may be relevant to the collection, please visit or contact Carrie at
