Bryanna has been with the museum for a few years now in the Collections department (and no, that’s not a part of the accounting department that hounds you for money!) helping take care of the museum’s artifacts, and installing special exhibitions. She never expected to work in a museum until she found a Master’s program in Museum Studies and changed career paths, and only at HMNS does she get to see and experience such a wide range of specimens and exhibits! When not at one of the museum’s many buildings she can usually be found quilting, reading a book, or buying shoes.

    For Dr. Bakker

    We met about 10 years ago when you presented in Tampa Florida and I was wondering if I could impose on that brief acquaintenceship.

    I have some rock samples that I purchased at an auction for my granddaughter and would like to know what they are. Several pieces are quite interesting and, sadly, what little I remember from my Geology classes of 40+ years ago is not helping me. I think one sample is a fossilized palm stem and another seems to be a fossilized dinosaur bone, based on the shapes and morphology. The third is, well, very, very different. Would you allow me to send digital photographs to you for identification? If so, please email me. If it is an imposition or is not convenient for you, I understand.

    Thank you so much for your time and any consideration that you are able to provide.

  2. Sounds like a fun time. Tell Dr. Bakker Hello from Malta, Montana. I bet the kids will be thrilled to see him!
