Keith is the first oral history intern at Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park. He created our 'Paterson Great Falls Memories' form and is conducting oral history interviews. A student of history and public relations at William Paterson University, Keith has also volunteered at the Botto House American Labor Museum in Haledon, one town over from Paterson.
As part of his internship, Keith will have a variety of duties:
- He will identify, contact, interview and record 3-6 people who worked in, or owned, mills in Paterson, in order to gain first-hand knowledge about the history of the park and Paterson.
In his free time, Keith enjoys playing guitar and skateboarding.
Keith found his internship through the Student Conservation Association (SCA). The SCA works to build conservation leaders for the future and encourage stewardship of the environment and our communities.
