Meet our January intern!
“My name is Isabella Meier and I am an Archaeology Major and a Classical Studies Minor at Randolph-Macon College, set to graduate this May. I'm from Vienna, Virginia and have always had a strong interest in history and a love of museums. This led me to the Lee-Fendall House Museum were I am currently a collections intern. I love learning the ins and outs of collections and archives management. I feel as though my internship has pushed me towards a job that I hadn't considered before and has been an amazing experience so far. One of the best things about my job is the everyday humor that I find in some of the documents. For example, I found a vegetable themed Valentine's Day card from 1907. It depicted a child with a vegetable head and a terrible vegetable pun. I still think it is one of the funniest and most horrifying things I have ever seen.”
