Historic Undertaking

Mark Horowitz finally got his PhD in history from the U of Chicago, 34 years after starting the process.   He got sidetracked, raising kids and starting businesses.
Among history doctoral candidates nationally, 47 percent have not graduated after 10 years. At the U. of C., it takes history students an average of 8.3 years to finish.
By the time you put that diploma on the shelf,
you've lived a lot of history yourself!
