New Interns Carry On Successful Ransom Center / UT Program
In the fall of 2002, the Ransom Center inaugurated a charter project to give undergraduates in The University of Texas at Austin's Plan II program an internship at the Center. The success of the program achieved measure beyond our expectations, and after a successful first run, the Center wishes to announce the appointment of three new interns.
The Center welcomes Erin Baudo, Lindsay Peebles, and Gautam Ganeshan as the 2003-2004 undergraduate interns. As interns, Erin, Lindsay, and Gautam will have the opportunity to participate in a broad range of functions throughout the Center, from addressing research queries to supporting exhibition planning and assisting in the preservation of the collections. Having begun their term in earnest last fall, the interns have already had the chance to acclimate to their positions and form opinions about the work they have embarked upon. Says Erin Baudo of her experience thus far, "Everyone is so incredibly helpful and enthusiastic about our work at the Ransom Center. A huge highlight for me has been the opportunity to see and interact with the unbelievable artifacts housed at the Center. I think we all feel extremely privileged."
