Last Chance to Donate

March 11, 2021

We are making a last-minute push to double our initial fundraising goal by raising $10k.  Thank you for your support and be sure to reach-out to your OSU friends to donate.

Check plus!

February 18, 2021

With a week yet to go, we achieved our goal of raising $5000 for the Ron Petrin Memorial Fund.  Thank you again for your generous donation; you've all earned a "check plus" from Dr. Petrin.  While $5k is good, $6k is even better, so our goal has been raised with a week to go.  Email your OSU friends to remind them to donate and that they have until Feb. 24 to do so.  Tell them too to check out the donor wall to see the many heartfelt comments left by friends and colleagues in tribute to Dr. Petrin.  

More than $3000 raised during first week

February 01, 2021

In less than one week we have raised over $3000 in our goal of raising $5000 for the Ron Petrin Memorial Fund.  This goes to show how much Dr. Petrin meant to so many people.  If you haven't already, please email the Fund's link to all of your OSU friends so they have a chance to give.  Thanks again for your generous support.

Every Gift Counts!

All gifts help current and future history students achieve their goals.


Phi Alpha Theta

Dr. Petrin was very active in the OSU chapter of Phi Alpha Theta and with the national organization. He always encouraged students -- undergraduate and graduate -- to present research at PAT conferences.



Conference registration is expensive. It now costs over $100 for non-member students to register for the AHA.


Robber Baron

In honor of Dr. Petrin's fascination with the economic aspects of the Gilded Age.
