Sally Reynolds

Sally’s love affair with the Great Lakes began in a childhood spent near Chicago and on numerous trips throughout the region. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of Indiana, she earned a Ph.D. in French at the University of Chicago and became a tenured professor at the University of North Carolina. Her fluency in French has enabled her to delve into the journals of the explorer Champlain and to research original sources on such topics as the lucrative fur trade between Native Americans and Europeans, the battle for North America during the French and Indian War, the War for American Independence, and the War of 1812. Sally is eager to share her fascination with the history of the Great Lakes with you on this cruise.
