New Intern!

As Curator of Collections, newsletter editor and much more, it is difficult to find time to update this blog, but much has gone on at MCHS since my last post.

MCHS is pleased to have Will Tchakirides, a graduate student from American University in Washington D.C. as a collections intern for the summer.

Will is assisting with cataloging our Brewery collection as a whole, in preparation for a potential exhibition on the topic sometime in 2010.

The Deaccessioning process has begun in the collections department as well. As a whole, the Society has collected items outside its collecting policy since its formation in 1935 and the time has come to remove objects that no longer fit the mission of the Historical Society. As summer progresses, I will keep you update on both projects.
