McKey Berkman: Conservation Intern

In the late spring Deborah Howe contacted the head of the book binding program at North Bennet Street School in Boston to explore the possibility of summer interns from NBSS working in Preservation Services. I'm happy to announce that our first NBSS intern, McKey Berkman, has been busy at work in the conservation since June.

McKey has finished the first year of the two year NBSS program and in our conservation lab is learning to put theory into practice. In her short time here she has learned treatment assessment, a variety of spine repairs, and developed skills in production oriented conservation.

McKey's last day is August 20.

(By the way, if you marveled at the peonies from Maxine's party, they were from McKey's garden!)
