James Walton (who goes by ‘Drew’), attended the small liberal arts college of Longwood University where he received his B.A. with a major in History and a minor in Anthropology. Following graduation, Drew spent several months interning at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History’s Archives Center where he gained a deep appreciation of the field of Public History. He has high hopes that Virginia Tech’s Material Culture and Public Humanities program will further his goals of formally entering a career in museums, archives, or any similar institutions dedicated to preserving and promoting human history.
