The Library Welcomes Mary Murphy


The Library welcomes Mary Murphy, the new Pembroke Center Archivist.

For several years Mary was a Manuscripts Archivist and, more recently, the Administrative Librarian at Harvard University’s Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America.

Her prior professional experience includes working at the Boston Redevelopment Authority and the Georgia Historical Society.

Mary’s undergraduate degree is in History from Beloit College.  She completed her MFA in historic preservation at Savannah College of Art & Design and her MLIS in Archives Management at Simmons College.

Since moving to Providence, Mary has fallen in love with Narragansett Bay and is now the proud owner of the tiniest boat at Fox Point Marina!
