It’s that time of year again when we say good-bye to our summer interns and welcome our new fall students.
This summer, Jessica Hills, our Schuyler and Yvonne Moore Intern, inventoried and arranged the Bob Inglis Papers (he represented the 4th Cong. District for 12 years before losing his primary race last summer.) Jessica also helped with an evening event, attended a meeting or two, and toured some area repositories. Jessica now returns to Auburn for her 2nd year of graduate studies. She reflected on her experience in a previous post. Thanks for everything, Jessica!
Nataly Garzon is in her 4th week volunteering with us and will be here a few more. She processed the Marion Smoak Papers (a state legislator and a diplomat–also friends with the Goldwaters). She became THE expert on Smoak around here. Nataly is now compiling a research guide to the Cold War, which will be online in the fall (we’ll post it here). She is from Columbia, SC, and is a rising sophomore studying Political Science at Williams College in Massachusetts.
Two undergrads will be volunteering here this fall. James Strickland and Lauren Stefan, both rising seniors in the Honors College, will work with the Joe Wilson papers and write a research guide on a topic of their choosing, among other possible tasks. James is majoring in History and Political Science. Lauren is an International Studies student.
We’re excited to welcome aboard a new graduate student assistant, Caitlin Mans. Caitlin comes to USC from St. Catherine University in Minnesota. She will be a museum studies student in the award-winning Public History program. Caitlin joins our 2nd-year grad student assistants, Laura Litwer and Katharine Klein. Virginia Blake, who graduated with her MLIS recently, will stay with us through the fall as a staff member. We’re lucky to have her around while she job hunts. (someone hire her; she’s awesome!)
