To continue our series of profiles on members of the NELA Newspapers collaborators, meet Kate Dundon, the Project Manager of the NELA Newspaper Pilot Project. She is working to design and document sustainable standards and procedures for the larger project of digitizing the collection of Northeast LA newspapers held at Oxy.
Kate has worked at Occidental College in various roles over the past year, including Project Archivist and Instruction and Research Consultant. She earned an MA in Archives and Public History from NYU, and a Masters in Information and Library Science from Long Island University, both in 2011. Raised in Pacific Grove, CA, Kate has a strong interest in California history, and is thrilled to be learning about the history of Los Angeles through this project.
