Not all the work to be done by our volunteers and interns happens here at the Campbell House. Our next intern introduction, Alex, is hard at work parsing through archives as part of our ongoing search for Campbell-related legal documents. Here is Alex…
What are you studying and where? A BA in History at UMSL.
Why Campbell House? Because it is where I was assigned [Ed. note: Well, yes, we do like to keep on UMSL’s radar, so they’ll direct interns in our direction who have never heard or thought about us before. You don’t have to know anything about Campbell House to do valuable work here!].
What are you working on at CHM? I am working on the Campbell Family Legal Legacy Project [Ed. note: We’ve noted before this involves trips to the St. Louis Circuit Court and Missouri State Archives office to dig up old files].
When you aren’t having a blast at Campbell House, what are you doing? Hanging out with friends and family. I enjoy movies, traveling, theater, and hiking!
What is your favorite thing about CHM so far? I have loved looking through all the old documents at the Missouri State archives.
iPhone or Android? Actually, I have a Windows phone [Take that, Apple and Google!].
Favorite color? Blue&Green
Favorite band/singer? Frank Turner
Andy Warhol said that everyone gets their 15 minutes of fame. What happened in your 15 minutes? I was in the newspaper as a child visiting the Magic House.
If you could be teleported anywhere in the world right now, where would you go? I would love to see Machu Pichu in Peru.
