    Archival Assistance Internship
    (January 8, 2018)

    Archival Assistance Internship

    The St. Mark’s Historic Landmark Fund is offering a paid 12-week internship beginning in mid/late-January 2018 for motivated individuals looking to gain experience in archival management in a non-profit environment. It is made possible with a grant from the Archival Assistance Fund of the New York Preservation Archive Project. This is available for undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in archival studies programs; recent archival studies graduates are also eligible to apply.

    Background: The St. Mark's Historic Landmark Fund is a 501-c-3 not-for-profit organization. Before its incorporation in 1979, it was the Friends of St. Mark's. The Friends was formed in the 1970s by a group of neighbors of St. Mark's Church In-the-Bowery who were inspired by and wanted to support the program they were watching unfold at the Church -- a youth training program for low-income residents focused on restoration and the building arts called the Preservation Youth Project. The Friends would become the Citizens Committee to Save St. Mark's in order to raise funds towards restoration and rebuilding after a devastating 1978 church fire. Then in 1979, the Citizens Committee changed its name to the St. Mark's Historic Landmark Fund when it formally incorporated as a not-for-profit organization with the mission of helping to preserve and interpret the landmark site. Since 1999, the Landmark Fund has been responsible for the operations of the Neighborhood Preservation Center and the maintenance of the Rectory building, which houses the NPC project. The Rectory was damaged in a 1988 fire and the creation of the NPC was the solution adopted to restore and adaptively reuse the building. NPC is a co-working space that offers a resource center and space to share information and facilitate exchange with those working to improve and protect neighborhoods. The story of the St. Mark's Historic Landmark Fund is a history of many of the people and projects that have all been a part of the preservation of St. Mark's Church In-the-Bowery since the 1970s, and it's all contained in the Landmark Fund's archival collection.

    The collection consists of papers, visual and audio materials, and objects related to the St. Mark's Historic Landmark Fund (1979-present) and the preceding efforts which resulted in the creation of the organization.

    Description: This position will continue a project initiated in 2015 to organize the St. Mark's Historic Landmark Fund's collection, including the following tasks:

    • conducting a file level assessment;
    • finishing finding aid;
    • developing an archival policy; and
    • addressing accessibility and the future of the collection.

    Requirements: This candidate must be currently enrolled in or be a recent graduate of an archival studies program and have experience with identifying and maintaining archival resources and organizational documents. Ideally, the candidate will have prior knowledge of file level assessments. Must be detail-oriented, have strong communication skills, and the ability to both work individually. Note: There may be times when we ask for help with other projects going on in the office if more hands and assistance are needed.

    Please send cover letter and resume to Kayte Handler by Wednesday, January 17 via email info(at)neighborhoodpreservationcenter.org or by mail to: St. Mark’s Historic Landmark Fund, 232 East 11th Street, New York, NY 10003.
