Drawings and Archives welcomes our new Graduate Archival Interns for 2012-2013. Emily Rinaldi (GSAPP-HP) will be working on the papers of the architect Alan Burnham (1913-1984), an early preservationist supporting the foundation of the New York City Landmarks Commission . Pamela Casey (MFA-Writing) will be processing the papers of another notable New Yorker, Henry Hope Reed (1915- ), founder of Classical America, Curator of Central Park, and often considered the father of the modern walking tour. Shelley Hayreh, the Avery Archivist, will supervise the work of the interns and edit and publish their processing files into online finding aids at the end of the year.
We would also like to acknowledge the achievements of our 2011-2012 interns, Lauren Murtagh and Christopher Cowell. Both produced excellent finding aids for two fascinating and difficult collections.
Lauren's finding aid on the architect Alfred Neumann.
Christopher Cowell's finding aid of the papers of Clyde Dorsett, architectural consultant on mental health architecture.
