Last Day!

First of all, a huge THANK YOU to everyone in the archives department here at OSU, especially Laura Kissel and Lisa Carter for making this internship not only possible, but an incredibly enjoyable experience. There is an amazing group of people here, a group I am happy to have been a part of even if only for a short time.


Another big thanks to the original camera men. If not for them… well, this material would not exist. I would exist (I hope), I just wouldn’t be here.


I saw more of Antarctica than I ever imagined, all in a climate controlled conditions. Kind of like a vacation but not really like a vacation at all.

Stay tuned!  Follow the Byrd Polar Research Center Archival Program and The Ohio State University Archives on Facebook.


I head off for my own adventures now. First, time for pizza.

Thanks for reading everyone!!
