Preservation Long Island is pleased to welcome two new team members:
Kristen M. Delatour is a rising senior at the City College of New York majoring in Anthropology and minoring in English. As an SJ Levy Fellow and summer intern at Preservation Long Island, Kristen will work with Preservation Director Sarah Kautz and Curator Lauren Brincat to research the relationship between labor, class, and race by analyzing the historical archaeology collections of Joseph Lloyd Manor. Kristen will also delve into the history of enslavement at Joseph Lloyd Manor by studying the colonial economies and politics of the region and the literature of Jupiter Hammon.

Peter Fedoryk has a B.A. in History and Art History from Villanova University and an M.A. from the Winterthur Program in American Material Culture. He has worked extensively with the art and manuscript collection of the nineteenth-century American landscape artist Thomas Cole, as well as painted landscapes by George Henry Durrie. The Art of Edward Lange Project offers an opportunity for Peter to build on his past work studying physical and painted American landscapes while shifting his regional focus to Long Island. Peter is eager to join Preservation Long Island’s efforts to build a foundation for Lange’s work to better inform our understanding of the region’s diverse historical landscapes.
