Parting is such Sweet Sorrow

As the words of William Shakespeare elaborate, this will be my final blog post of the summer. Tomorrow will be my last day here at Special Collections as the Diane Werley Smith ’73 intern and it is amazing how fast the summer has flown by. For the past few months I have learned and experienced so much and I am grateful for every moment. From processing the letters of a World War II housewife, Lillian Quinn, to rehousing and digitizing dance cards, it has been a busy and fulfilling summer. I believe one of my favorite projects was my work with the dance card collection. After having begun the project this Spring semester it has been wonderful seeing it come full circle; being rehoused and transformed into a digital collection. I can’t thank the staff of Special Collections enough for the great opportunity and all the help that they gave me. Also thank you to my fellow interns for the good times, and fantastic pie times J I’m looking forward to the fall! So for the last time, Avery over and out. Cheers!
