Intern—Independence Seaport Museum, Philadelphia, PA - June 1998 to April 2000
I assisted the museum’s Director of Restoration in publication of a Historic Structures Report for the floating museum/former USN warship U.S.S. Olympia (C-6) currently berthed at the museum. This veteran of the Spanish-American War is the oldest steel-hulled warship still afloat in the world. My duties included surveying and detailed analysis of the ship’s structural condition, mapping its current compartmental layout and comparing that to different configurations through her service life, as well as determining the historical provenance of many items found on board. I also performed research on the ship’s wartime history. That information was included in the eventual publication along with various pages of graphics and CAD drawings that I created for inclusion with the report.
