Chandi Singer joined the staff at Swem Library Special Collections in 2000 after working at the Mariners’ Museum as the assistant curator for small craft. She spent over 10 years at Swem, working on the Warren E. Burger collection artifacts/photographs and establishing a tradition of rotating library exhibits, such as this one. Ms. Singer retired from Swem in 2011, but continues her love for museums and libraries and where their collections interact.
