Student P/T - Culinary Historian - a Private Individual

Culinary historian needs a student to help sort the photos and papers of four generations of her New York family. These papers encompass the immigrant experience on the lower east side, up to the Bronx, and back to Manhattan, with involvement in real estate on one side, and politics and the judiciary on the other.

Ideally she would like to find someone who could help decide what to keep, and then scan and catalogue the material. Right now everything is in the brownstone she has lived in for the last 50 years in mid-Manhattan, but work could be taken out to the south shore of Long Island (close to the city) where she spends the summer, if someone wanted to spend some time at the beach.

Please email and send a brief summary of experience and interests and whether you would prefer working on LI in the summer or Manhattan in the fall.

Employer is flexible about days and hours.
Salary negotiable.
