More International Expertise for the Museum
Doug comes to the Museum by way of Ottawa, Canada where he is completing his Museological studies with the Applied Museum Studies program at Algonquin College in Nepean.
With both domestic and international experience in the museums field, Doug brings a skill set that includes exhibit design and fabrication as well as the conservation and restoration of obsolete technology from the smallest radio to the largest aircraft.
A former Triumph and Harley Davidson service technician, Doug has contributed technical writings for a variety of magazines and periodicals as well as writing articles on a variety of issues concerning the international museum community.
Additionally, Doug has contributed expertise in German uniforms, accoutrements and heraldry to publications for the advanced collectors market as well as public institutions.
“No matter the country, the challenge for all institutions worldwide in the coming decade will be to maximise their available resources. I feel that international working experience in the field allows me to acquire and share practical and workable solutions to delivering a high quality museum experience to our patrons. In our profession, solutions to shared problems from a variety of sources will be the way of the future”.
Doug will be completing his MA in History with the University of Toronto later this summer.
