Archives Internship at the Seaver Center

Seaver Center for Western History Research is the two-dimensional and flat objects collection area of the History Department. The Seaver Center is located on the Ground Floor at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles, California.

I attended an internship at the Seaver Center for five days, instead of going on Spring Break. I did spend a little bit of the weekend going on a tour of Los Angeles, Venice and Santa Monica. I was traveling by myself, which definitely made me feel out of my comfort zone. I also visited the Los Angeles Public Library, which was such a beautiful building.

Here I am reviewing the items in the archives. I would review what was in a photo, write a description, then file it away in a folder.

This is me with the team of archivists that helped me with the internship. They are all full-time at the Seaver Center, but they had reviewed which areas they each specialize in. I worked for 7.5 hours each day then had a 30 minute lunch. I strolled through the beautiful Exposition Park, which had a rose garden.
