2020-21 Berger-Howe Fellow

Jamie Grischkan

Jamie Grischkan is the Raoul Berger-Mark DeWolfe Howe Legal History Fellow at Harvard Law School for 2020-2021. She is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of History at Boston University, where she studies American legal, political, and economic history. Jamie holds a B.A. magna cum laude from Duke University and a J.D. cum laude from the University of Michigan Law School. She practiced corporate law at an international law firm before pursuing doctoral studies. Jamie is writing a dissertation on the rise and regulation of bank holding companies in the United States over the course of the twentieth century. Her project argues that the movement to combat the expansion of bank holding companies and the concentration of financial power in the decades leading up to and following World War II represents a pivotal, yet forgotten, chapter in the history of the American antimonopoly tradition. Her research focuses on American political economy, and explores the intersections between financial regulation, antitrust law, and antimonopoly policy.
