On June 16th, 2021, we lost a dear friend and classmate, Maya K. Peterson. Maya, a 1998 South Hadley High School graduate, was an internationally recognized scholar, lover of learning, exploration, nature, and her community. We remember her best from grade school and high school. She was the epitome of a scholar and athlete who was valedictorian of our class, a swimmer, lacrosse player, and active member of many clubs. We knew that she would do great things in this world. Following her undergraduate years at Swarthmore College, she traveled the world and developed friendships far and wide, but she always loved coming home to Western Massachusetts. As an Associate Professor of History at the University of California, Santa Cruz, Maya’s research spanned health, the environment, and the transnational histories of science and technology in the modern era. She was a light to all who knew her; an idealist who always found laughter and curiosity in life and in everything around her.
