Farewell to Long Time Friend and VIP
Malcolm was a member of our Morristown family for over forty-two years. He was a member of our partner organization, the Washington Association of New Jersey (previously serving on the board), and served the park as a reenactor, trade demonstrator, and museum technician.
Since retiring in 1990 as a nautical engineer and ship designer, Malcolm has been a valuable volunteer with the Cultural Resource Division, assisting with numerous projects dealing with the conservation and preservation of the museum collection. In 2004, he helped prepare the museum collections for off-site storage and in 2007 was part of the unpacking/rehousing team. He has since worked on the artifact catalog database; park scrapbooks; rehousing historical maps, prints and paintings; cataloging and inventory of various collections (furniture, muskets, porcelain, carpentry tools, etc); and sorting and labeling the park historic photo collections, among other things. Malcolm's latest effort was a set of technical drawings he drafted for a Dutch liquor box reproduction project.
