Welcome, Mike Lally!

Please welcome Mike Lally, a MuseumWorks intern who is working with Wendy up in Armstrong. Mike is a rising senior, majoring in physics

Mike Lally, ’18, researching instruments

and art history. He will be working on researching and cataloging items in the Antique Scientific Instruments collection, and learning about digital preservation. In the end, we hope to digitize a subset of the collection – including 3-D scanning! – and he will create a new exhibit for the Armstrong lobby area. He has already discovered treasure in the collection, so we will be posting semi-regularly on the exciting find-of-the-week. Stay tuned!

    Can we add some of his finds and narratives to our Facebook page? Good photos. Descriptions of the items and their uses. Won’t need more than 3 sentences. 3 posts for the duration of the summer will suffice.

      Absolutely! As we find treasure, I was thinking we could make it part of the ‘science corner’ idea we were considering. Some of these items have fabulous stories behind them. Let’s talk!
