Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden wishes to extend its sincere appreciation to Lisa Gluckstein, a native of Los Angeles County and a senior studying Art History and Practice at Williams College, who worked diligently with the staff to create these very useful and attractive webpages that focus on the Marcus E. Jones archives held in the special collections at the Botanic Garden.

Ms. Gluckstein was an intern with RSABG during the summer of 2011 as part of The Getty Foundation's Multicultural Undergraduate Internship program.  Each summer, The Getty Foundation supports internships at museums and arts organizations across Los Angeles County for undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds. For 19 consecutive summers, the Garden has had the benefit of outstanding Getty interns.
