The second of our crew of stellar interns this semester is Josh, an undergraduate history student at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. He’s on board through the Spring to lend a hand with some backlogged collections projects we have around the Museum. Meet Josh!
What are you studying and where? I’m a junior at the University of Missouri-St. Louis and I’m a history major.
Why Campbell House? The Campbell House sounded interesting to me because it’s a wonderfully restored 19th century house.
What are you working on at CHM? I am working with the Museum’s collection and updating uncatalogued pieces to be put into the online database.
When you aren’t having a blast at Campbell House, what are you doing? Mainly, I work as an Assistant Manager at Sonic Drive-In, I’m at home studying or I’m hanging out with my girlfriend and two dogs. (editorial note: this guy isn’t kidding. He’s up before the crack of dawn working the breakfast shift, then goes to classes, THEN comes and spends the afternoon with us! A trooper if there ever was one.)
What is your favorite thing about CHM thus far? My favorite things about CHM so far are the Parlor and Dining Room because I get to feel fancy for a brief moment.
iPhone or Android? iPhone. Duh.
Favorite color? Blue.
Favorite band/singer? Nickelback.
Andy Warhol said that everyone gets 15 minutes of fame. What happened in your 15 minutes? My high school choir director presented me with an award for being the most outstanding students before I graduated. It was an unexpected 15 minutes of fame.
If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose? I would be the Flash because I can move fast.
