Summer Interns 2011

The Museum Division has five new interns working on various collections projects during the summer of 2011. Sara Schneider and Amanda Strobel began their first day yesterday, working on various collections.

Sara has been assigned to work on W.P.A. theatre costumes that were made during the 1930's for various Milwaukee schools and theatre groups.

Amanda will be tackling the daunting task of cataloging over 500 World War II posters. Topics such as espionage, rationing, and bond drives are just a few of the programs that were promoted by the government during the war.

Welcome Sara and Amanda!!
