Anthony DiVirgilo is in the American Studies program at Salem State University. After being a big help to the organization last October as a volunteer concierge, we were delighted that he wanted to intern to learn more about the various roles working in a museum.
Museum work isn’t always glamorous, but the reward is knowing that you helped to preserve history in some way. Anthony jumped into work with Susan Baker Leavitt, our Collections Care Specialist, and assisted with preventative care in each of our historic houses, integrated pest management, and risk assessment. He contributed to our interpretive planning process by supporting primary source research related to the Turners and Ingersolls and their business interests.
Anthony always joined us with a willingness to work and learn and will be missed. We are extremely grateful for his hard work over the past few months.Tags: intern, internship, learning, on the job training, safety first, Salem, salem state university, tyvek suit
