Meet Our Summer 2021 Interns
Education is a big part of CCAHA's mission, and every year we're privileged to be joined by interns and fellows from across the country and around the world. Internships and fellowships foster an exchange of knowledge, as our guests work under the supervision of CCAHA staff while bringing new research and the latest ideas from their academic experience. This summer, we welcome Kaeley Ferguson for a six-week stay and Natasha Kung through the end of 2021.
Kaeley (above left) recently completed her first year of the Winterthur/University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation (WUDPAC) with a Library & Archives major and a Paper Conservation minor. For the summer, she works in the book section of our lab with Senior Book Conservator Richard Homer. This week, Kaeley cleaned several leaves from a bound volume of New Jersey Supreme Court minutes (c. 1716-31) from the collections of our friends at the New Jersey State Archives.
Natasha is a fourth-year Photograph Conservation major at New York University's Institute of Fine Arts. At CCAHA, she works alongside Senior Photograph Conservator Barbara Lemmen. Here, Natasha examines an autochrome belonging to the National Geographic Society in Washington, D.C., part of a larger survey CCAHA is conducting of their Early Color Photograph Collection.
