Farewell, Alyssa

It is that time in the summer when our interns head back to college. We would like to extend our warmest sendoff to Ms. Alyssa Vorbeck, a rising junior at Messiah college.

This summer Alyssa was hard at work researching the Samuel Smith History of New Jersey, in honor of the New Jersey 350th celebration.

MORR 9570 and LWS 591, at Acorn Hall

In addition to contributing research blog entries about Smith and his work, Alyssa created a brochure that accompanies a Samuel Smith exhibit featured at neighboring Acorn Hall. This exhibit will run through December and features a book and a manuscript from the Lloyd W. Smith Collection. Read more about these artifacts here.

This summer, Alyssa also found herself dipping into other museum/cultural resources projects. She help us with some historical house keeping in the Ford Mansion and aided with annual inventory.

Thanks, Alyssa! Good luck this year!
