As is tradition, we welcome incoming new members of our staff here at the Archives with you on the blog. Two more have joined our team, Lydia and Tricia, and both are getting well into the swing of things after working for a few weeks.
Patricia Griffin is a junior here at NMU from Austin, Texas. She joins Grace as another accessioning specialist, but with a focus on processing and reorganizing our massive American Association of University Professors (AAUP) records collection with Marcus. Tricia is excited to be working on processing the AAUP records because she is very interested in collective bargaining. She also really enjoys hiking and exploring the Marquette area- “especially if I can find a dog to accompany me”- and is also a member of Phi Sigma Sigma, a social sorority here at Northern. She goes by Tricia.
Lydia Henning is a senior Spanish major with a minor in Art and Design, from Fowlerville, Michigan (who’ll be with us at the Archives next year too). She joins Libby as another digitization/web specialist here. You might also see Lydia working upstairs from us at the Library. Lydia is excited to learn more about the history of the U.P. and gain experience working! She likes to eat many kinds of foods (like sushi!). She enjoys learning Spanish and reading historical fiction.
Please welcome Lydia and Tricia to the Archives!
