This is a list of Academy members and their email addresses. I've included descriptions of the people who have sent them in and links to home pages for those people who have them.
Many SCA members have separate Web pages for their SCA activities. Clicking on someone's real name will take you to their home page; clicking on an SCA name will take you to an SCA page.

Destini Baldonado (Safya al-Mughanniiyah bint Ziyad al-Misri) email@example.com
Although educated in Geology, my first love is the bardic arts. I currently am finishing a Master's degree in Geology while doing my best in the SCA to increase the activities and presence of the bardic arts within my kingdom. My function with the Academy is a proof-reader, although someday I aspire to be able to understand enough of what's going on here to do some of the research. Once a client of the Academy, I thought it was just too cool and decided to help out where I could.

Kathleen M. O'Brien (Mari neyn Bryan)
Kathrine M. O'Neal (Ekaterina Novogorodskaia) email@example.com
Kathrine (called Kitty) is the youngest member of the Academy of St. Gabriel, the youngest Pursuivant at Large of the Kingdom of Ansteorra (in Onomastics), and a general layabout who enjoys badgering newcomers to the Society into Russian names. She is an Armiger, and occasionally refers to her alter-ego as Pomestnitsa, even though there's no record of a 17 year old female being the mayor of Novgorod in 1125. Ekaterina (called Iarina by close friends and family) was born to Stepan and Feodosiia, and is the fourth of a set of nine. Stepan is a wealthy landowner, who supplements the income from his properties in the country with trade in fur, regularly making the run from Novgorod to Constantinople with his eldest sons and his daughter's husbands. Ekaterina should probably be married by now, but is bookish and stubborn, and her father, who is rather fond of her, is putting it off until someone of suitable temperament can be found.
