John writes: "I am a 1997 graduate of UMBC where I earned my BA in History. I have been working at the B&O Railroad Museum since February of 2006 where I am the Curator of Archives and Small Objects. I work directly with the Museum's collection of archival material, photographs and railroad artifacts. I assist outside researchers and work as part of a team to create new exhibits. The knowledge and skills I learned as a student at UMBC prepared me to be effective as an archivist and historian."
