Rebecca Dickinson - Intern 2013
Rebecca Dickinson, a History major at Heidelberg University, Tiffin, Ohio performed her Service Learning requirement at the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center during 2012. All Heidelberg University honors students in the program are
required to complete forty hours of community service at a local organization. As a History major, Rebecca continued her experience at
the Hayes Center by performing an archival internship the following semester.
Rebecca has digitized more than 30 speeches of President Rutherford B. Hayes that are uploaded to the Hayes Center website. She has also helped digitize a taped interview of the late WWI Marine Elton Mackin. She has processed and written finding aids for numerous collections of records of local women's organizations. Rebecca worked with the Hayes Center Exhibit Team to mount "Tales of Travel from the President's Attic" and "War of 1812 on the Ohio Frontier." In the fall, Rebecca will return to the Hayes Center to assist the staff with future exhibits.
Rebecca is from Middleburg Heights, Ohio and spends her
summers as an intern at the Berea Historical Society. She plans to graduate
early from Heidelberg in December 2013 and begin graduate school for Library
Science as soon as possible. She hopes to gain further experience in as many areas as
