VU undergrads present research on presidential appointments

Two Vanderbilt undergraduates had the rare opportunity to present their research findings on the influence of patronage on presidential appointments and government performance at the 2010 Midwest Political Science Association Conference. Nick Gallo, a recent graduate, and Gabe Horton, a rising senior, were mentored by Professor of Political Science David Lewis last summer. The students will submit their research to peer-reviewed academic journals for possible publication at a later date.
