Brad Congelio

Currently a PhD student in Olympic History, Brad is studying and writing his doctoral dissertation on the Ronald Reagan administration's attempts to influence those African countries under the Soviet sphere of influence to defy the Kremlin and attend the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games despite the Soviet Bloc boycott. He is also highly interested in the recreational culture of the Black Hills gold rush (and, thus, the story of the little known Mt. Rushmore baseball team). Brad currently holds a Masters degree in Sport Management and an undergraduate degree in journalism. He was awarded the 2007 Cochran Award for Outstanding Achievement in Collegiate Journalism.
