Thank you, Matt and Katie!

Katie and Matt in the Memphis Room

It’s hard to believe that our 2014 Archival Fellows have already come and gone… Katie Jakovich and Matthew Hicks finished their fellowship on Friday after spending the last two months here with us in the Memphis Room, and we miss them already.  In addition to processing several collections and taking a short field trip to pick up another collection, they also managed to listen to ALL of the Harry Potter books and The Hobbit.  It was a magical summer, indeed.

Their big project – and I do mean big – was to process the Benjamin L. Hooks Collection (more details to come soon!).  True students of Hogwarts, they are masters when it comes to sorting.  Katie’s photographs below show the progression of the collection, from piles to well-organized boxes.  Thanks to them, the collection will be publicly available very soon.

Thank you both for your great work and wonderful enthusiasm!  Don’t forget to come back and visit soon!
