Abstract

We interviewed Byron Preston, the exhibits preparator, at the Museum of Natural History.

When visitors arrive at the museum, the exhibits are just there but no one is sure who creates the exhibits. We interviewed Byron because we want to learn more about who puts the museum together. Through his hard work and dedication, Byron researches and creates exhibits that capture what the artifacts have to offer. We captured the story of a man doesn't get enough credit or recognition for what he does. Byron is an Iowa City native, and although he moved out west for a while, he found his way back home.
