For two weeks in January 2011, eight graduate students from the University of Delaware's Museum Studies Program traveled with their program chair to Laurel.  The work that was done was thanks to funding from a grant that the Laurel Historical Society received from the Institute of Museum and Library Studies (IMLS).  The students worked hard and poured over the collections of the Society. They worked in both the Cook and Studley Houses to catalog, clean, preserve, and enter into the computer database, the many items that the Society has had for so many years.  The Society would like to thank the students and their professors for all of their hard work on behalf of the citizens of Laurel.  Below, you will see some photos showing the work that the students did.  We hope that you enjoy!
