About Allyse Zajac
Allyse Zajac was one of the 2018 Mystic Seaport Museum Studies Interns. Allyse is from Franklin, Massachusetts and graduated from Salve Regina University with a BAS in History and Secondary Education. While at Salve, Allyse also spent a semester student teaching World History at North Kingstown High School in North Kingstown, Rhode Island.
At Mystic Seaport, Allyse spent her summer transcribing and interpreting the ship’s log of the Neptune from New London, during its 1840-1842 voyage. This was exciting for Allyse because she enjoys finding interesting information about the sailors’ lives or learning something new about day-to-day work as a whaler.
