Volunteer Spotlight: Steve Newfield

For the last three years, retired Telcordia software developer Steve Newfield has been helping the cultural resources division organize and photograph various museum and library collections. Newfield has a keen eye for detail and has used his photography skills to capture quality images of Morristown NHP's powder horns, pocket watches, rare books and manuscripts, and historical diorama figures, among other things.

For his most recent project, he is labeling and scanning the Park's historical slides collection.  This collection includes more than 3,000 images. When this project is complete, Morristown will have a complete digitized database of historical photos. This database will help staff and researchers better access and navigate Park images.
