    History and English degrees in hand, Meredith Hindley left UW and set off for Washington, D.C., and she has been there ever since—writing, editing and promoting the humanities. It started with an internship at the National Endowment for the Humanities while she attended American University for graduate school. “That internship turned into a job writing, editing, building websites and explaining the importance of the humanities to the American people,” Hindley says. “I’ve been at NEH for more than two decades.”

    This October, she will publish her first book, Destination Casablanca: Exile, Espionage, and the Battle for North Africa in World War II. She also has written essays and reviews for Humanities, The New York Times, Lapham’s Quarterly, Barnes and Noble Review, Salon, Longreads and The Christian Science Monitor.

    Hindley grew up in Colorado but fell in love with UW on a visit. “Attending UW was one of the best decisions I’ve never made,” she says. “I received a tremendous education at UW, which taught me critical thinking and how to write. I use those skills every day.”

    Taking part in the Honors Program was a highlight of her time at UW. “The small classes and dedicated faculty made such a difference in my college experience,” Hindley says.

    “Leave your preconceptions about Wyoming behind,” she says to those considering the university. “Everything you need to succeed is there.”
