    Hello, my name is Matthew Nolder, and I am currently a History/Political Science major at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford. I wanted to inform you of an internship that I am currently working on with Pennsylvania Kinzua Pathways in terms of an historical awareness project. Also, I was wondering if I could be given permission to use the photo of Harriet Beecher Stowe that you have for this post for my paper? I assure you that the photo would not be used for profit but mainly for academic purposes.
