No More Nancy

Sadly, we must say goodbye to conservator Nancy Shippen as she relocates to her home town of Atlanta, Georgia. Nancy came to us over 2 ½ years ago from University College London. During her time at JPPM, she has cheerfully worked on many projects in the conservation department of the MAC Lab. Her smiling face could be seen peeking around; iron artifacts from the Jamestown Settlement, a cannon traverse rail from Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas, wooden ship parts from Blackbeard’s flagship, artifacts from the U.S.S. Monitor, World Trade Center shipwreck timbers, and so much more. We wish Nancy well and we will greatly miss her wonderful smile.
