New Stories from the Collection

This summer, Morton Museum volunteer Alina Dorion researched and wrote two blog posts featured below. Alina is currently a graduate music student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She has degrees in journalism and music from Drake University and has worked in museums and libraries in Iowa. Alina plans to also get a degree in library science and would one day like to work in a museum, library, or archive. Alina and her family recently moved to Collierville, and she’s excited to get to learn more about the town and its history!
