I have known Ellen for many years thru Internet History forums.
She is an enthusiastic supporter of this Blog.
Last year Ellen invited me to Texas to talk to her post-graduate students about Norn Iron and Conflict Resolution. This was a genuinely life-changing experience for me…even at the ripe old age of sixty.
To see her recognised as one of the stars of her generation of historians is a great thrill.
Ellen has a fascination with footnotes…and pointing in that authorative way at things.
Proud of my friend.
