Dana Howell is the Digital Education Archivist at the Monmouth County Historical Association. She earned her BA from Rutgers University, and is currently earning her MA in American History through the Gilder Lehrman program at Gettysburg College. She previously served as research librarian and archivist for several years, during which time her focus was also education-driven. She created the Digital Diversity Oral History Project to proactively document the history of our underrepresented communities for tomorrow’s generations of learners, and began the Remembering Covid-19 project, one of the earliest pandemic documentation projects launched in the country on March 15th, 2020, alongside the New York City Public Library. MCHA's new digital education companion to the award-winning exhibit Beneath the Floorboards: Whispers of the Enslaved at Marlpit Hall makes the fascinating exhibit content accessible for students, and is supported by numerous state and local organizations, including the New Jersey Council for the Social Studies, the Monmouth University School of Education, and the Monmouth Ocean Educational Services Commission. She is currently working on a curriculum-based high school resource to spotlight the rich and amazing history of Monmouth County, and focused on bringing the best of the MCHA archives to students across the state.
