Megan and scroll
Megan working on the birch bark scrolls she was able to unroll for us.

In February of 2013, we were able to add Megan O’Connor to our part-time staff. She has a Master’s Degree in Museum Studies from the University of Toronto and has done internships at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC and at the Royal Ontario Museum. She has also done a diploma program in conservation [how to protect, preserve and repair vulnerable artifacts] and then did an internship with the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in the UK.

We made full use of her while she was with us and had her do a conservation ‘advice’ column for our newsletter on how to preserve your precious family heirlooms. We have assembled them here.
