A look into the past will give insight to the future, according to Kansas State University's newest David S. Boren Fellow.

Tony Demchak, doctoral student in history, Twinsburg, Ohio, has been awarded a 2013 David S. Boren Fellowship to explore archives in St. Petersburg and Moscow, Russia, for 11 months. Reviewing the archives will give insight into how Russian and Soviet leaders made decisions in the past and how Russian leaders might make decisions today.
