MEET THE INTERNS » MICHAEL

Next up on our summer intern crew is Michael – In addition to helping us with furniture repair projects, heavy lifting and power washing in the garden, Michael has been hard at work for the last few weeks giving tours and working on a special Campbell-centric research project. Meet Michael!

Michael

Intern Michael! Visit him this summer and click on his image to learn more about internships at the Campbell House Museum.

What are you studying and where?  History at Mizzou.

Why Campbell House?  The Museum was very intriguing and a piece of St. Louis history.

What are you working on at CHM?  Putting together a detailed timeline of Robert Campbell’s life. (editorial note: This is no small task. Michael is combing through pages and pages of family documents, research and business records to create a week by week, in some cases day by day, timeline of RC’s life and inputting the information into an in-house database. This is going to be a GREAT tool for researchers at CHM in the future.)

When you aren’t having a blast at Campbell House, what are you doing?  Hanging out with friends and family, reading and watching shows and movies.

Michael's phone. He wasn't kidding.

Michael’s phone. He wasn’t kidding.

What is your favorite thing about CHM so far?  Seeing actual possessions that the Campbells used on a daily basis and finding out more background info about Robert.

iPhone or Android?  Neither. 😦

Favorite color?  Blue.

Favorite band/singer?  Billy Joel, Rush.

Andy Warhol said that everyone gets their 15 minutes of fame. What happened in your 15 minutes?  Multiple service awards and leadership honors. *BONUS* I know all the words to “We Didn’t Start the Fire”.

Ice cream – in a cone or a bowl? (also, what kind?)  Cone, chocolate with peanut butter cups.

MEET THE INTERNS » JOSH

Intern Josh. Click his image to learn more about internships at CHM!

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.)

Iggy-fancy

Editorial note: This place makes us feel pretty fancy too.

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.
