The critical research skills I learned at Wooster and how to see a largescale project through from start to finish prepared me well for life after Wooster. My Independent Study project was a pictorial history exhibit on the Civil War Draft Riots of 1863. Completing a history exhibit while I was still an undergraduate helped me to further uncover my passion for bringing history to the public.
In my current position as Archival Assistant in the Photo Archives, I see how closely related archival work is to an I.S. project. After my time at Wooster, I was well versed in how to articulate my work to an audience, which is key to creating an archive that is accessible to others.
The most important thing my Wooster education taught me is that I can set my sights on a project that seems insurmountable and conquer it. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity that I have now to help others become as excited about the history of baseball as I am. I would love to one day, create my own exhibits and special programs for a history museum. I believe that a graduate degree will be an important part of my future but for the moment, I think the most important thing I can do is to soak up experience in the field.
