John Maranto

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."

Maryland Conservation Heritage Internship

The Maryland Conservation Heritage Project, designed to preserve, promote
and interpret the legacy of resource conservation in Maryland, is looking
for interns to help kick off a long term project.

Interns will work at Maryland State Parks, State Forestry Field Offices
and Historic areas managed by the Department of Natural Resources to
identify, collect and conserve artifacts and archival materials (including
photographs, papers, film and other historical records) that document the goals and achievements of Maryland's conservation agencies dating back to the mid-19th century.

Interns will be expected to document the location and condition of these artifacts, recommend a plan of action to ensure their preservation, and conduct research to help establish their historical significance.

Interested individuals should send a short resume and an email indicating their interest in a Maryland Conservation Heritage Project Summer Internship to the State Park Historian, Ross Kimmel: RKIMMEL@dnr.state.md.us
