IAS faculty member Kevin Y. Kim has received the Silas Palmer research fellowship from the Hoover Institution Library and Archives (HILA) at Stanford University. This internationally competitive grant supports Kim’s research at the Hoover Institute Library and Archives, one of the world’s most important repositories regarding issues of war, peace, and global social, political and economic change in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Kim is completing research at HILA for his book-length project, Worlds Unseen: Henry Wallace, Herbert Hoover, and the Making of Cold War America. A finalist for the Allan Nevins dissertation prize from the Society of American Historians and recipient of grants from the Society for Historians of American Foreign Relations and American Historical Association, Worlds Unseen explores former U.S. President Herbert Hoover and vice-president Henry Wallace’s conservative and liberal leadership of the United States’ most influential dissident movements against the global Cold War.
