Welcome Summer Interns

Hailing from three fine universities, this summer's cultural resource interns were up for an intensive archival immersion.

College of New Jersey rising senior, Amelia Zurcher, is a history major with special interests in Colonial Mid-Atlantic American history. Amelia will be working with intern Hannah-Abigail to scour the Ford Family papers for evidence of Theodosia Ford's activities. You may have seen Amelia around our Jockey Hollow unit, as she has volunteered with the Herb Society of America, at the Wick House garden.

Rising senior, Hannah-Abigail Mosier, is studying public relations, women's and gender studies, and policy studies at Syracuse University. Collaborating with Amelia to research Theodosia Ford, Hannah-Abigail is looking forward to piecing together a more comprehensive picture of women's lives during the American Revolution. She is especially interested in Ford's role as matriarch.

Kean University rising senior, Zachary DeLeon, is has an affinity for 18th and 19th century American history. He will put his history major to good use this summer as he contributes to an exhibit for the NPS Centennial, hosted at the State House Rotunda, in Trenton. For his part, he will research the papers of William Paterson and Thomas Randolph, showcasing Morristown's fine representation of New Jersey historical governors.
