New Summer 2011 Intern

This summer, Elizabeth will be interning at the Ball State University Archives and Special Collections from May 9, 2011 to August 12, 2011. She is from Elkhart, Indiana and has lived locally in Muncie since her freshman year at Ball State in 2008. A senior this Fall 2011 to Spring 2012 academic year, Elizabeth is involved in the Honors College majoring in History.

She became interested in archives earlier this year when John Straw, Assitant Dean for Digital Initiatives and Special Collections, gave a presentation to Dr. Michael Doyle`s History 240 class. After graduation next Spring, she plans to pursue a Masters program in archival studies. She wants to attend graduate school in the United Kingdom and possibly direct her studies there in archives or museums.

Elizabeth hopes to "gain a good foundation in archival work this summer while interning at the archives....and further relate what [she] learns to the field of public history."
