Lincoln University of PA
Former Special Collections Librarian
Lincoln University, PA
I spent ten years working in the Special Collections Department and Archives of Lincoln University of Pennsylvania, as Archivist Assistant from 2000-2005 and as Special Collections Librarian from 2005-2010. I was passionate about preserving and sharing access to the history of this institution, founded in 1854 as Ashmun Institute to provide a higher education to free black men, at a time when slavery still existed. Although Lincoln University eliminated my position in 2010, putting Special Collections and the Lincoln University Archives on the back burner, whenever I have the opportunity, I have continued to promote the digital collections that I established between 2002 and 2010, as an invaluable resource for historians and genealogists.
