Yesterday the Archives and Special Collections received a blast from the past! Andrea Peterson, who was a student assistant in the University Libraries from 2004-2007, stopped by to say hello. Currently, she is a research assistant for Senator Tim Johnson and is working on completing her master’s degree.
While employed at the Libraries, she worked on processing the USD Photograph Collection and created several finding aids for the Richardson Collection, which include: the Lewis Ellsworth Akeley Papers and the Wall Drug Papers. Andrea also transcribed a Civil War Diary that is now available electronically in the Digital Library of South Dakota.
