History major John Boudreau ’14 presented a paper titled “Savages and Indians: European Perceptions of Native Americans in the Canadian Fur Trade 1754-1819” at the New York State Upper Regional Conference of Phi Alpha Theta, the history honor society, at SUNY Oneonta on April 12. The faculty panel at the conference selected Boudreau’s paper as one of the six best presented.

The paper, which was drawn from Boudreau’s upcoming senior honors thesis, focused on the complex and often contradictory ways European fur traders understood the native people they encountered in western Canada.

About 30 papers were presented at the conference. Boudreau was awarded an academic book in the field of his choice.
