Past Editorial Board Members
Thea Rockwell '12 Thea is a senior History of Art major with a minor in French. She knows embarrassingly little about pop culture and likes to pretend that this is a result of growing up in Canada. Her favorite Sunday evening activity is attending Haverford Journal meetings.
Hannah Silverblank '12 (Co-Editor in Chief) Born and raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Hannah is a double major in Comparative Literature and Latin whose obsessions range from ancient languages to the phenomenon of "diva-dom," and in particular, that of Mariah Carey. Outside of Haverford, Hannah enjoys contemplating nail art, great dogs of literature, dismemberment, and country music.
Will Stone '12 Will Stone is a senior English major from New Haven, CT. Most of his papers revolve around landscape and sex, but he's trying to branch out this year and add apocalypticism to this field of interest. He has an unabashed love for Akon and 90s pop rock. His other hobbies (because, yes, those last two are hobbies) include cooking chicken based meals and listening to NPR, where he hopes to work someday. He's a stickler for deadlines, except when it comes to writing his own short bio.
Jane Holloway Jane Holloway is a junior English major. Her favorite smart people include Roland Barthes, Susan Sontag, Lady Gaga, and her mom. She used to be a cat person but she has begun to enjoy dogs.
Nick Lotito Nick Lotito is a senior from an old ranch town in Orange County, California. He studies political science and French, and accordingly reads five percent of each issue of the Economist and watches European YouTube videos. He does New York Times crosswords on Mondays to make up for the brain damage he sustains during rugby matches. Nick has won his mother’s praise and admiration singing a cappella, and his favorite Lady Gaga song is Paparazzi.
Thea Hogarth Thea Hogarth is a friendly member of the class of 2011 who will answer to a variety of nicknames -- among them "Wrecking Ball" and "Theapopolis." She joined the Journal board before she even had a major, but now she's a healthy Comparative Literature major with a minor in French. While she could blather on about literature for days at this point, she prefers to learn new things. If you know, for example, how to make paper or bind books, Thea would like to know you. If you've got a good joke about the sine curve, please tell her. As we speak Thea is most likely: reading, drinking coffee, listening to NPR, trying to do a Tuesday crossword puzzle, or some combination thereof.
Candice Smith Candice Smith, class of 2011, is an English and Fine arts double major with a concentration in painting. She starts at shortstop for the Haverford College Softball team and is an editor for the Haverford Journal. She is particularly interested in the interplay between text and image, how each has the power to open up meaning for the other, and she hopes to work out that interest next year by incorporating her two majors into one thesis.
Hannah Silverblank Born and raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Hannah is a Comparative Literature and Latin double major whose obsessions range from ancient languages to the phenomenon of "diva-hood," and in particular, that of Mariah Carey. Metamorphoses and Mimi aside, she is deeply preoccupied by houses, dogs, making schedules, and making lists about things she likes to do. Deeply steeped in her family tradition of library worship, she spends most of her time behind the Circulation Desk at Magill or trying to stake out the couch on the fourth tier. When outside Magill or enjoying a moment's respite from bibliomaniacal behaviors, Hannah loves to sing karaoke, bake goodies, work on her children's book, and cultivate her "great rose-gray-never-to-be-had" pop star persona.
Rob Williams Rob is a sophomore political science major who is never able to spend enough time outside. He studies marginalized groups from indigenous rights activists to international terrorists. He also plays a lot of hockey.
Jacob Horn Jacob Horn '13 is a proud Washington DC native and potential Classics major. Since coming to Haverford, he has been surprised how many times he has ended up appearing in staged readings of ancient plays (or fake ancient plays he wrote himself) performed in the Sunken Lounge of the Dining Center, is hoping that he can set some sort of record related to this during his time here. Like many Haverfordians, he keeps busy with a variety of activities, including being an editor for the Bi-College News, singing with the Haverford Mainliners, and appearing in various theatrical productions. He also works at the ACC Help Desk, and would be happy to help you with your computer woes.
Ben Theodore Ben is a junior Political Science major and Economics minor from New York. He is particularly interested in American politics, which he follows religiously (feel free to quiz him on the Senate Parliamentarian). He also is an avid music listener, which often parallels his political interests by focusing his attention on people you've probably never heard of. When his mind is actually focused on things within Haverford's confines, he is a member of the Housing Committee and works for the Athletic Training staff. After being active in Students for Barack Obama two years ago, Ben now anxiously awaits the next presidential campaign, blissfully unaware that those only occur once every four years.
Celia Ristow '14 Celia is a history major with an environmental science minor, with a special love of environmental history. When not thinking critically about environmental issues or growing baby plants on her windowsill, she also loves reading, tutoring kids!, wearing corduroys, watching Seinfeld, eating oatmeal, and chatting with friends. Hi!
