Last week we had a great visit with Jodi DeBruyne and Mallory Howard, who are both members of the curatorial staff at the The Mark Twain House & Museum in Connecticut. Jodi and Mallory visited to research the Clemens family’s visit to Saranac Lake in 1901 as part of planning for a 2023 exhibit on the family’s summer vacations. Our Archivist / Curator Chessie Monks-Kelly spent the day with them talking tuberculosis and Twain.
This and several other research trips were funded by a planning grant from CT Humanities. We learned a lot about the Clemens family during their visit, and look forward to seeing the exhibit and continuing the relationship between our two organizations! Thanks for getting excited about history with us!
