Interns take a behind-the-scenes look at collections and conservation
May 1, 2012
On April 30, three Historic New England interns toured two floors of our collections storage facility, photo studio, and conservation lab in Haverhill, Massachusetts, with Registrar Megan MacNeil. The interns, two working with Historic New England's development team and one working with our education team, learned about the organization's founding principles, collecting policies, deaccessioning projects, loans to other institutions, and new gifts to the collection.
Historic New England offers internships to graduate and undergraduate students pursuing degrees in American studies, American history, museum studies, arts administration, preservation studies, art and architectural history, library and information science, and related fields.
