Bingham Center Former Staff, Interns, and Volunteers

 The Bingham Center has a long tradition of welcoming interns and volunteers who want to gain experience working with rare materials that focus on women and gender. We consider these workers to be an integral part of the Bingham Center staff and we are committed to designing projects that complement their interests while giving them valuable work experience. The energy and enthusiasm that our volunteers and interns bring are invaluable contributions to The Bingham Center and we are deeply appreciative of them and their work.
We would like to recognize all of our former staff members and describe briefly their contributions to the Bingham Center. Some "former" staff and volunteers are still involved currently. Please contact us if you have worked at the Bingham Center and we have inadvertently left you off this list.
