While Shaik eschews some conventions of academic histories, such as historiographical debate, she stays faithful to her primary documents, ledgers from Economy Hall’s long history, which her “father rescued . . . from the back of a pickup truck” in the 1950s. What Shaik does best, “is the recovery of much of this once hidden history.”
