For the past 2 weeks I have continued to work on the annual inventory of collections with the other intern, Rebecca. We have looked at foundry patterns, ship clocks, sheet music, augers, spirals and other significant objects. We’re slowly coming to a close on the inventories. The accessions inventory is the hardest because sometimes there are no descriptions, no locations, or no other information that can help us find a particular object or archive. Although I do not have any pictures of those specific objects I do have a couple pictures of me finding objects!

I was calling out the catalog numbers for the augers or spirals on the top shelf.

This is the art rack where signs, pictures, paintings, medals, plaques, and rosters are found for the inventory.

In other news, I did get to visit Fort Warren on George’s Island, a prisoner of war camp and fortification, Saugus National Historic Site, the site of some of the first ironworks in the colonies, the Adams National Historical Park, where the houses of John Adams and John Quincy Adams are found, and Salem Maritime Site.
