Claire Brooke Mundy is our fourth graduating Graduate Assistant from the C.H. Nash Museum this spring.  Brooke served as the Collections Manager at the Museum for the past two years.

Over that two-year period she completed a diversity of tasks including:

  • Refurbished, re-organized, and instituted a series of best practices in the repository and collections management system.
  • Coordinated the inventory and transfer of the Museum’s library and associated records to a new site location.
  • Organized the collections component of our volunteer and community service learning programs that included three AmeriCorps NCCC teams.
  • Instituted our Artifact of the Week Facebook post and contributed to the Chucalissa e-Anumpoli blog.
  • Revised and updated the Museum’s Collections Management Plan and Disaster Plan.

Brooke’s most memorable experiences during her GA at Chucalissa include getting real-time experience that she was able to directly apply to her career.  During her tenure she also was awarded scholarships to attend multiple conferences that dealt with legal issues in museums, special needs accessibility, and other topics.  Brooke reports making “great friends, colleagues, and memories” as a highlight of her time at Chucalissa.

Brooke just returned from Seattle where she attended the American Alliance of Museum annual meeting.  Finally, we congratulate Brooke for being hired as the new Collections and Special Projects Coordinator at the Morton Museum of Collierville!!  Being awarded this position, even before formally graduating with her Masters Degree from the University of Memphis is a testament to Brooke’s exceptional qualifications and her taking advantage of the opportunity to develop and apply those skills while a Graduate Assistant at the C.H. Nash Museum.

Stop by the Morton Museum and say hello to their newest employee!
