Laurie Glass will discuss her research methods and overall use of libraries, relating to her study of the life and influence of nursing
leader and strategist, Katherine Densford Dreves. Professor Glass's research on Dreves has resulted in a series of scholarly

HAROLD ROSE, Professor, Department of Geography and Urban Studies
Harold Rose will discuss his research methods and overall use of libraries, relating to his current research on homicide in
Milwaukee. The U.S. Department of Justice-funded Milwaukee Homicide Project, a joint effort by Professor Rose and
Anthony Maggiore, Associate Professor at UWM's School of Social Welfare, is looking at two years' worth of police, court,
hospital, social service, and school records, as well as conducting community interviews. The object of the study is to identify
patterns and similarities in victims and those who commit crimes in order to suggest ways of preventing crimes and reducing
the number of homicides citywide. Professor Rose, whose research areas are urban violence and urban geography, has spent a
career legitimatizing the introduction of urban and racial issues into the field of geography. He has stated that this will be his final
research project before he retires.
