2004 Summer Internship

    Shelburne Farms, a National Historic Landmark and non-profit
    environmental education organization located on the shores of
    Lake Champlain in Vermont, is offering an eight-week summer
    internship. The intern will assist with a detailed survey of
    Shelburne Farms' historic blueprint collection that numbers over
    800 and in this capacity will serve an active role in the
    documentation, condition, assessment, and stabilization/minor
    treatment (including flattening and/or rehousing) of the
    collection.  The intern will receive training in condition
    assessment and report preparation as well as conservation
    treatment and work closely with the curator of collections in
    the Archives at Shelburne House. A stipend of $3,000 will be
    provided.  Students currently enrolled in graduate programs in
    conservation, historic preservation, or related programs are
    encouraged to apply.

    Please send a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, names of
    three references (please include phone and email information)
    electronically or by mail to the curator of collections.
    Deadline for application is April 15, 2004 and selection will be
    made by May 1, 2004.  Specific dates and project plans will be
    arranged with the intern selected.
