I am so pleased to welcome three student interns this fall from Duxbury High School. Last year an Internship at the Drew Archival Library was added to the DHS’ course catalog. Interested students applied through the History Department. The interns will be meeting here, at the Archives, for one period each day and will be completing a variety of tasks, including processing a collection.
The students are off to a great start. Casey Reinhart is working with our extensive Photographic Collection; Allison Martin is processing the Bittinger Family Collection of scrapbooks, journals and photographs; and Colleen Leddie is processing the Lily Harris Collection of late 19th century correspondence to a young woman living in Duxbury.
Over the course of the semester I hope each of the Interns will contribute to the Blog and let you know what they are up to and how they like being Jr. Archivists.
