He received his Bachelor's degree in English Literature and Philosophy from Colgate University in Hamilton, NY. In 2011 he completed a practicum in authorities cataloging for the National Archives and Records Administration in College Park, MD. Richard is excited to work for the Smithsonian Institution, an organization he has always admired.
Alice Doolittle lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where she recently completed her Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) degree at the University of Pittsburgh. Alice also holds an M.S. in wildlife conservation from the University of Minnesota and a B.S. in biology from Yale. Having worked as a science teacher, field biologist, and a desk jockey at a conservation organization, Alice looking forward to combining her biology background with her library science training. She views the Smithsonian Field Book Project as a great opportunity for her goals and is excited to be contributing to and learning from the project this summer.
