In completion of my Senior Individualized Project at Kalamazoo College I obtained an intern position, for the winter quarter of 1984, with the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) at the United States National Archives in Washington D.C. The internship provided me with the opportunity to study and learn about the histories and operations of the National Archives, the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, and the Library of Congress. I was required to partake in specific archival duties, which included the locating and researching of documents for various Commission sponsored projects. I completed a research project of my own using the National Archives as a resource. And finally, as an intern I was able to attend occasional lectures and discussions.
