Samantha Blatt received her bachelor’s degree in history from Penn State University before pursuing a certificate in Historic Preservation from Bucks County Community College. After time at Bucks County Historical Society and the National Museum of American Jewish History, Samantha joined the Center for Oral History at the Science History Institute. Her work not only involves conducting interviews for various projects and developing the oral history collection more generally, but also creating and cultivating public-engagement pieces and public-history events, including the biannual oral history training institute, the National Academy of Engineers regional meeting in Philadelphia, and the Things Fall Apart oral history walking tour. Samantha has volunteered her time as events chair for the Young Friends of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania since 2015 and as the development director of oral history in the Mid-Atlantic Region (OHMAR) for the last two years. In this latter capacity she has been responsible for the programmatic elements of OHMAR’s fundraising programs, including those for GivingTuesday, the Martha Ross Prize, and OHMAR’s annual meeting, as well as for direct work with individual and corporate donors and sponsors.
