Museum Voices, Episode 8 - Home Alone with Claire Milldrum

Posted in Uncategorized by museumsassociationmontana on November 18th, 2013

  In a special Home Alone edition, I tackle a thought provoking piece from our mail bag.  Claire Milldrum, who is studying Art History and Peace & Justice Studies at Wellesley College, wrote me a wonderful letter and asked a few questions about What it's like to be a local museum director.  Her letter got me diving deep into some of the big questions, and big thoughts, and she also asked for some advice.

In this double bonus, triple-header episode of Museum Voices, we hear from Jodie Foley, State Archivist for the state of Montana.  As State Archivist, Jodie is also involved with the State Historic Records Advisory Board (SHRAB) for Montana, so she's the perfect person to fill us in on this program that brings new and emerging archival professionals to our institutions.  We also hear from Adrienne Evans, one of the SHRAB awardees who is working at the Heritage Museum in Libby, Montana, and also from Trent Purdy, the other awardee, at Copper Village Museum in Anaconda, Montana.
