Linda Kwakkenbos, PhD - Psychology and Behavioural Science

Linda was born and raised in The Netherlands, where she obtained a BSc in Psychology (2005) and a research masters degree in Behavioural Science (2008) at the Radboud University Nijmegen. Linda then finished her PhD work in Psychology at the Rheumatology department of the Sint Maartenskliniek Nijmegen and the Behavioural Science Institute of the Radboud University Nijmegen. Her thesis focused on the assessment and treatment of psychological well-being in systemic sclerosis (scleroderma). Linda completed her doctoral thesis in the summer of 2012 (thesis defense January 2013).

Linda joined the Behavioural Health Research Group (BHRG) in the summer of 2012 to continue to pursue her research related to psychosocial and quality of life issues among scleroderma patients. She is the Co-Director of the Scleroderma Patient-centered Intervention Network (SPIN), an international team of more than 50 researchers, clinicians, and people with scleroderma from 8 countries, which is devoted to developing online tools to support well-being among people with scleroderma. Dr. Kwakkenbos received a Postdoctoral Fellowship from the Fonds de la Recherche en Santé Québec (2013-2015) and was recently awarded the prestigious Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (2015-2017).

Isaac Quackenbos and The Border Wars

ISAAC QUACKENBOS was the son of David and married Dorcas Van Alstyne. Together they had the following children: Abraham, drowned in Schoharie Creek, near Ft. Hunter; David; Peter; who settled in Wisconsin; and Martin.

The following anecdote is related of Isaac Quackenbos in Sim's "History of the Border Settlers":

Isaac Quackenbos was under Col. Harper near the Susquehanna, as believed, in 1778; when he happened to be alone, he discovered five Indians sitting on a log mending their moccasins. He was under the cover of a tree within gun-shot of them, his gun being loaded with a bullet and four buckshot. He supposed that if he fired on them they would naturally conclude that he was not alone and his temerity construed rightly. He fired, and two of them fell and the surviving three ran off, and he ran too, though in the opposite direction. He obtained assistance, returned and found the two dead warriors and the moccasins the party were mending.

This incident was communicated by John S. Quackenbos, a nephew of Isaac, and corroborated by Isaac Collier, a fellow soldier of Quackenbos at the time.

ISAAC QUACKENBOS was appointed Lieutenant of the 5th Tryon Co. Regiment, March 3rd, 1780.
