Early Life and Education
Sampson quickly formed close ties to fellow soldiers and developed an affection for General George Washington. She also recognized traditional roles for women while striving to challenge them.
She donned men’s clothing and cut her hair shoulder length for ease of combat, an aesthetic popular at the time. Often sent on raiding expeditions and scouting trips, she was once wounded by musket balls to the leg – fearful that an examination from a surgeon might reveal her true identity, she pretended her injury was only superficial – hoping not to reveal herself before seeking medical advice.
Once Sampson had recovered, Dr. Barnabas Binney discovered she wasn’t male – however he did not inform her; rather he sent her on a mission to West Point with a letter for her commander.
Sampson helped student-athletes thrive at both Oklahoma University and Star of Hope Mission through the Sooner Reading Program and as community leader at Norman, serving Thanksgiving lunches to Star of Hope Mission residents and leading an Texas Special Olympic event at Hofheinz Pavilion and Guy V. Lewis Development Facility.
Sampson and the Cougars entered this year as one of the preseason favorites in the American Athletic Conference, and have lived up to that expectations by winning both regular-season and tournament championships and reaching the Elite Eight.

His research examines how rural 18th and 19th century Nova Scotians created modernity during this era. From evicted Acadians and Highlanders, marginalized African-Americans and Mi’kmaq or modestly capitalized farmers to modestly capitalised improving farmers, rural people helped shape markets, imagine competencies, debate modernity’s various dimensions of freedom and constraint that defined settler societies, shaping markets as markets were imagined and creating social movements to define modernity as it existed in their settlement societies.
