Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North has been nominated for an Emmy Award by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

The nomination is in the category of “Outstanding Individual Achievement in a Craft: Research,” one of thirty-three categories for news reports and documentary films aired on national television in the last year.

Congratulations to Katrina Browne and the rest of our research team—Catherine Benedict, Beth Sternheimer, and Jennifer Anderson.

This is the second Emmy nomination for Associate Producer Catherine Benedict, who won in this category for her work on the PBS documentary, Africans in America. It is a first nomination for Associate Producer Beth Sternheimer and researcher Jennifer Anderson.

Jenny is now an assistant professor of history at SUNY-Stony Brook, and I think she summarizes the task of researching the D’Wolf slave-trading past quite well: “Dredging the dusty files of the Bristol Historical Society was not terribly glamorous.”

The News & Documentary Emmy Awards will be presented at an awards ceremony on Monday, September 21 in New York City.
