Researcher and Curator Bio

Paige Milner is a fourth-year student at Western University completing an Honours Specialization in History. Her historical interests lie in the United Kingdom during the Victorian period – focusing on social and women’s history. Recently, she has embraced her love of public history and has begun exploring different facets of the field – creating exhibits and conducting oral interviews. 

In February 2022, Paige presented her essay “Nursing in the British Military Before Florence Nightingale,” at the 25th Annual Student History Conference, hosted by Ball State University. In May 2022, Paige was part of a small group of students who installed their exhibit, entitled “The No. 10: Western University’s First World War Stationary Hospital” at the J.A. Schweitzer Gallery in Western’s Weldon Library. Throughout her final year of her undergrad, she will be working on a senior thesis on the Toronto Magdalene Asylum and Industrial House of Refuge with Public Historian and Western Professor Michelle Hamilton as her supervisor.
