Eileen Huey

Eileen Huey has taught World Civilization and Western Civilization courses for Tidewater Community College for twenty-five years.  Her undergraduate degree is from the University of Delaware, where she majored in History and minored in English, and her graduate degree in European History was awarded at the Naples, Italy Campus of the University of LaVerne.   Professor Huey has been an integral member of the History Department of the Norfolk Campus since its founding, and played a critical role in the very successful Federal Grant Program “Studying History Through the Local Lens”, conducted by TCC for the professional development of K-12 teachers of the Norfolk and Portsmouth Public School Systems.   Ms. Huey’s academic philosophy that the study of global history provides students with the skills and knowledge necessary for successful professional and/or management careers in the real world of the 21st Century make her courses in World Civilization I and II two of the most popular courses in our curriculum.  Students will find her courses not only challenging, but extremely interesting and relevant to their academic development and personal enrichment.  In addition, Ms. Huey’s method of instruction provides even the novice student of history with a clear framework for the development of the critical thinking and skills necessary for mastery of the historical developments in societies from the earliest civilizations to the modern era.


George Martin

I am a retired U.S Navy officer and have been at TCC Norfolk since January 2004. I teach U.S. History 121 (1491-1877), U.S. History 122 (1877-1991), and (History 266) Military History of the Civil War. I am the coordinator of the John R Moore Memorial Military History Lecture Series which is offered 2 to 3 times per year. Along with Professor Mike Bales I am planning both an excursion to Baltimore this summer in honor of the anniversary of the War of 1812 and in conjunction with International Programs we are putting together a trip to Amsterdam, Waterloo, and Paris. The trip is entitled “In the footsteps of the Duke of Wellington” and should be offered in early August.

I teach/have taught World Civilization, Western Civilization, and United States History.   History can be found in a variety of places.  Places that I have visited that have historical interest include Yosemite, Yellowstone, Death Valley, and Badlands National Parks, and Manzanar National Historic Site.  History can be found in unlikely places also.  I love the Basketball and Football Halls of Fame, and the World Museum of Mining in Butte, Montana.  Why should students learn to appreciate History?  According to Cicero, "History is the witness of the times, the torch of truth, the life of memory, the teacher of life, the messenger of antiquity."  Should we not all have a role to play in this great academic adventure?  Go For Broke!
