Archivist Project Manager, Camp Tecumseh, Moultonborough NH
posted January 14, 2014 4:25 PM
Camp Tecumseh is a non profit overnight summer camp for boys founded in 1903 by three University of Pennsylvania Olympic athletes. It is located on Lake Winnipesaukee in Moultonborough, NH. Because we are non profit and successful in our mission and model, we expect to survive for many years into the future.
The Camp has a small room full of 2,000 historic photographs, minutes from the Board of Trustees, Camp newspapers from each summer, to everything else you might imagine campers, counselors and alumni have sent to us that we have catalogued and saved, all going back to 1903. We have a small inventory of three dimensional objects. Our Camp property has the history of being the Poor House for Moultonborough up until 1890 and five old buildings still exist and remain in important use. Our preservation of the barn received an outstanding evaluation from the University of New Hampshire. There is the remains of a cemetery where the poor and mentally ill were buried, near where we plan to build a museum for storage and display of the archives.
We are very capable of building the building, but we need help with the preservation, storage and display of the historic materials. We are searching for a part time Archivist Project Manager that we can employ in the summers going out some number of years to help us with the skills of preservation, storage and display as we gradually move toward a museum. We will compensate for services and expenses.
