Douglas Sheflin



I earned my PhD at the University of Colorado at Boulder where I studied modern American history with an emphasis on environmental and western history. Most of my recent research deals with land use and labor on the Colorado Plains and seeks to explain how the Dust Bowl New Deal and World War II combined to change agriculture in southeastern Colorado.
