First Job at Historic New England, Massachusetts

Portsmouth, New Hampshire

Story Narrative:

Talk about your first job.

"So, my first job was actually at Historic New England. I started as a registrar, and the first day of my new job was inventorying Cogswell's Grant, and I went with my boss and started to conduct an inventory which means listing everything out, very detailed. And I was so excited to get started. We started in the attic. Actually, we started in Jack's room and we opened up a chest and there were about 10, the 15 pairs of eyes staring back at us, and it was a chest full of taxidermy stuffed birds, which I was not expecting, and slightly frightened but ultimately delighted."
