Casey’s love for history and research began at an early age researching deeds and wills with her family in several Kentucky courthouse archives. Her passion for the records of the past has not diminished with her work in the Martin F. Schmidt research library, where she is able to assist people on their own quests for information. Casey never gets tired of the wonder and excitement of pulling records from archival storage. The ability to share these documents and their significance with others, as well as the opportunity to think creatively about how to solve research problems, are very rewarding aspects of her job.
Casey holds a bachelor’s degree in history and American studies from Lindsey Wilson College and a master’s degree in American history from Western Kentucky University.
Casey has been a staff member since 2017
