PHS Archivist Wins Scholarship
We are very excited to announce that David Koch, Reference Archivist at PHS, has been awarded the Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference Leonard Rapport scholarship to attend the Modern Archives Institute at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. The Modern Archives Institute is held only twice a year, and the MARAC Leonard Rapport scholarship is awarded to only one individual per session. The scholarship will help to cover the fees required to attend the bi-annual training session with introduces participants to archival theory and practice and the responsibilities of archival work.
David earned his Masters in Library and Information Science from Drexel University, and his Bachelor of Arts from Rutgers College. In his work at PHS he assists patrons with reference inquires both remotely and onsite and he collaborates on a variety of outreach activities. The training offered by MARAC will strengthen his ability to serve our patrons, and he will return from his two week course with new ideas that will benefit our reference team. Please join us in congratulating him.
