Introducing the “Adventurous Eight!”

Posted on June 4th, 2010 by

The Adventurous Eight!

This week we welcomed our new summer interns to the museum. Between Education, Collections and Exhibitions we are hosting 8 interns this summer – they make quite a crowd!

Exhibition interns Rachel Ellis and Julie Bertling will be working on the Chosen Food exhibition. They will be researching potential objects, listening to oral histories, and searching for interesting Jewish food events across the country.

Rachel began her summer internship this week with two days of orientation then an introduction to the Chosen Food exhibition project with Karen Falk. Her first experience in museum work, Rachel found the Collections room most fascinating, while learning how to handle objects was trickier than she anticipated.

Julie was away at a wedding for the second half of the week, so we’ll have to find out what she liked best next week!

Photo Collection intern Rachael Gilman will be working on the photography collection – scanning and cataloging photographs as well as inventorying the negative collection, digitizing oral histories and transcripts, and re-organizing the oversize photographs.

Rachael learned a lot about Baltimore Jewish History. Rachael also learned how to scan photographs; a skill that she will be using almost every day this summer as a photo intern. Her favorite thing was learning how to use Past Perfect software. She also really enjoyed meeting everyone on staff.

 

Collections intern Sara Patenaude-Schuster will be processing the new collections that come in this summer and photographing the 3D collections. In addition, Sara will be reviewing the AV collection and cataloguing them properly and digitizing the oral history collection.

 

This week, Sara learned an overwhelming amount of information in 3 days of orientation activities. She is very excited to put her new skills to work as Jobi’s Collections Intern. Her favorite part of orientation was handling objects!

 

Archival interns Brittney Baltimore and Kristin Davidson will be processing large portions of the Baltimore Hebrew University Archives. They will be responsible for basic preservation (removing staples and paperclips and placing documents in acid free folders and boxes), organizing the papers, and writing finding aids for each portion.

Brittney enjoyed her first week at the JMM. She participated in informative Past Perfect and Handling Training workshops. Her favorite part of orientation week was meeting the helpful staff and fellow friendly interns. She is very excited to travel to the Hava NaGrilla Kosher BBQ festival this weekend on assignment to interview festival goers for the Chosen Food exhibit.

Kristin Davidson participated in three days of orientation with her fellow interns. She also began scanning photographs from the Baltimore Hebrew University Collection. She enjoyed seeing the 1960s style hair and dress in the class photographs. The most useful thing she learned was how to use Past Perfect. Her favorite thing that she got to do this week was during the Object Handling workshop. She got to handle a beautifully painted porcelain Napoleanic tea set.

 

Education and Program interns Julia Mazur and Lindsay Waskow will be providing much needed assistance on several educational initiatives such as developing programs for our SuperKids campers and helping with arrangements for our upcoming Summer Teachers Institute. In addition, they will help research a documentary project focusing on Baltimore-area synagogues for our fall 50th birthday celebration.

 

Julia Mazur’s favorite part of her first week was going to Patterson Park High School and listening to ESOL students tell their stories about immigrating the Unites States. She especially enjoyed the pizza lunch.

Lindsay’s favorite part of her first week was going toPattersonHigh Schooland listening to the five ESOL students each tell their own unique stories about their immigration experiences to theUnited States.She very much liked hearing the comments from the audience and how touched everyone seemed to be that these students were able to narrate their stories in English, which is not their native language.
