Internships at Missouri Historical Society

From: Nicola Longford <njmlt>
Date: Monday, February 23, 1998
The Missouri Historical Society (MHS) is offering two graduate-level
conservation internships for the Summer of 1998.

MHS is mid-way through a major building expansion project which
includes new exhibition spaces scheduled to open in the Fall of
1999.  A disciplined, innovative and light-hearted conservation
intern is needed to assist the Objects Conservator on a multitude of
conservation projects ranging from treatments, exhibit materials
testing, exhibit/conservation case design--all in preparation for a
three-gallery,  18,000 square-foot exhibit on the history of St.
Louis.  This is an excellent opportunity to get some very practical,
"real" experience in a large, creative and fast-paced history museum

Another conservation intern, preferably with a serious research
interest in metals and/or ethnographic materials, is needed to work
almost exclusively on the preparation of an important travelling
exhibit on the Lewis and Clark expedition--scheduled to open in

Both internship stipends are $3,500 for eight weeks.  Start and
completion dates are flexible.
