Public History Intern

The Fraser Shipyards Collection arrived at the UW-Superior Special Collections in the Fall of 2013 and was processed in the Spring and Summer of 2014. Processing of this collection was completed in part by Emily Davidson as part of a Public History Internship (HIST 490). Ms. Davidson wrote a Historical Note for the collection, and created Scope & Content Notes and Content Lists for Series 1, 2, 4, and 7.
