Stephanie Vincent is a recent Ph.D. in history from Kent State University with a focus on American business and management in the 19th and 20th centuries. Her previous research focuses on the American commercial pottery industry and its fight against imports and trade policy. She explores the relationships between management in the formation of trade associations, collaboration on strategies, and in the difficulties of staying in business in the latter half of the 20th century. Her current project is an examination of handicraft industries' role in defense production during World War II.
