Congratulations to graduate intern Molly Wheeler, who will begin a two-year, grant-funded position with the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation in Connecticut this September. She will be processing the papers of the two Bauhaus artists. While working as an intern at the Ransom Center, Molly managed the sound recording project, establishing an in-house audio preservation program. Due to Molly's hard work, and with a generous donation from Jon and NoraLee Sedmak, the Center now has an audio reformatting lab setup that includes ProTools, a professional cassette deck, CD burner, and reel-to-reel machine, an excellent turntable, a wire recorder and a Gray audograph machine. She has also developed procedures for both preservation and access of sound recordings. This will allow us to reformat many of the unique sound recordings found at the Ransom Center before the information is lost. Thanks to Molly, a valuable cache of research material can now be made available to Ransom Center scholars. Molly has been a graduate intern for two years, while obtaining her master's at the School of Information, which she received this August. We wish her the best in her new career.
