The National Watch and Clock Museum has hired a new curator of collections to continue the legacy of Carter Harris, who retired from the museum in August. Kim Jovinelli, who joined the museum in December, will be responsible for the professional preservation, documentation, security and presentation of the museum collection.
Kim received her undergraduate degree in archaeology from Millersville University. She earned a graduate degree from The University of the Arts with a concentration in Collections Care and Management. She was the assistant curator for the Delaware County Historical Society and a volunteer with Independence National Historic Park’s National Park Service Archaeology and Collections Care and Management Department.
“Kim will be making improvements to the museum’s collection management practices, including documentation, security and access to the collection. I am excited to have someone as passionate about her profession as Kim joining our staff. She will bring a fresh perspective to our collection and our story,” states Museum Director Noel Poirier. As for Kim, she says she is “very excited to be working with the National Watch and Clock Museum! History is my passion, and preserving it is important to me. The history stored at the museum is an amazing amalgam of old and new, which is going to make for an amazing experience. After all, what is history but the passage of time?”
