Between 2010 and 2014, Erica was the contributing curator on a team of consultants preparing a detailed history of the interiors of three buildings on the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller estate property: the Mansion, Belvedere, and Bungalow.
Consultations, StEPs Standards Program
In 2013, Erica was hired by the American Association for State and Local History to hold brief consultations with several organizations participating in its Standards and Excellence Program for History Organizations (StEPs). These conversations were designed to assist the organizations in completing the collections standards portion of the program.
We both feel much more comfortable after talking with you that we can develop the tools and procedures to help our society. We've already started making plans and drafting procedures … We really enjoyed talking with you and felt so very encouraged. These museum amateurs very much appreciated your wonderful way of communicating your very impressive expertise in ways that we could totally understand and do." - Donnavae Hughes and Elizabeth Robbins, Volunteers, Garland County Historical Society
"The collections policy you drafted for us is not only clear, concise and thorough but also understandable for anyone, present and future boards, to interpret and understand the intent. Well done.” - Chris Palermo, Board Member, Waterbury Historical Society
