Introducing Slater Sabo, New Associate Editor

Born and raised in Vail, Colorado, my new position as associate editor with the South Dakota Historical Society Press brought me to Pierre in early July.

I earned my bachelor’s in history from Ohio Wesleyan University in 2019 and my master’s in American military history from Austin Peay State University in 2021. I am a member of Phi Alpha Theta, Phi Beta Kapa, and the Society for Military History. My experience as an editorial assistant for the Book Review Section of The HISTORIAN and as student editor for Theta Delta led me to a career in publishing. At APSU I had the opportunity to take courses on the history of the Trans-Mississippi West and the frontier U.S. Army, supplementing a longtime interest in Western U.S. and American Indian history.

I’m thrilled to join the staff of SDHS and contribute to their mission to preserve and disseminate the rich history of South Dakota. I’m also excited to explore this beautiful state and take advantage of the bountiful hunting, fishing, and watersports in the area.
