I was first introduced to the Hidden Collections Initiative for Pennsylvania Small Archival Repositories project a year ago when I served as an intern. I processed archival collections at the Independence Seaport Museum and the Radnor Historical Society. You can learn all about my experiences by reading the blog post Pirates and Prima Donnas: an Intern’s Adventures Archives.
I recently became the Project Coordinator a few weeks ago and am excited to learn more about the small repositories in the Philadelphia area and to work with my colleagues on the HCI-PSAR staff. If you’d like to learn more about the Small Repositories project, please contact me at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania at 1 (215) 732-6200 extension 234 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
