dc.description.abstractAs the first intern for the Frances Perkins Center, Rebecca Brenner organized and logged the extensive research of Kirstin Downey, author of The Woman Behind the New Deal, for transport to the Mount Holyoke College Archives & Special Collections. Rebecca learned archival skills, became comfortable with hand-written pieces of history, and synthesized information. Overall, this internship was one of Rebecca's favorite life experiences, and she will always remember the conviction of Frances Perkins, who said "social justice would be my vocation."en_US

dc.description.panabstractHow do you share history with the public? This summer, each of us sought an answer to this question. Whether at a museum, archive, or historic site, we explored the many opportunities available in the field of public history. Each of our internships allowed us to combine our academic interests and our professional goals. We learned to think in different ways and developed valuable skills, including research, public speaking, interpretation, and event planning. Ultimately, we indulged our interest in the past while gaining valuable experience that will inform our future.en_US
