Hi, I’m Claire and I’m the new project archivist working on the Francis Johnson Cataloguing Project.
I started work on the project last week and so far have been trying to get to grips with it all. Over 2000 architect’s files to weed, repackage, and catalogue, not to mention consultation and outreach activities. And all by August 2015!
We hope to hold a workshop around March/April 2014 to tap into the knowledge of professionals and specialists on the subject of architecture. With this in mind we are looking to recruit an architect and a postgraduate student interested in using historical architectural records.
We also hope to recruit volunteers with an interest in architecture to help us with additional research into buildings and sites worked on by Francis Johnson. Volunteering opportunities will be available from May 2014. Please do get in touch using my email address below if you are interested.
It’s going to be a busy but exciting time! I shall keep you posted on our progress over the coming months whenever inspiration strikes or something interesting happens! So stay tuned…
