Meet the Authors

Jennifer Potts is the Curator of Objects for the Delaware Historical Society and has been working with the Society’s collections since late 2007.  Although originally from the U.K., she worked in various museums in Massachusetts before coming to Delaware. She enjoys the curious, fascinating, and sometimes odd nature of the objects that often end up in historical collections, and loves to learn, share, and document their stories.  When not contemplating the twists and turns of an object’s past life, she enjoys books (the kind that still have real pages!), being outdoors, running, reading, and browsing in antique shops, flea markets, and library book sales.


Edward Richi serves as curator of books, curator of research, and staff artist at the Delaware Historical Society. As book curator, he catalogs and manages the Delaware Historical Society’s collection of books, pamphlets, family history sources, newspapers, microfilm, and general periodicals. As a research curator, he evaluates the Society’s collection for an international audience. Exhibits in the DHS History Museum have often included one of Edward’s large scale murals. The DHS website includes segments created by Ed, in particular This Month in Delaware History; This Week In Delaware History and weekly posts This Old Book! & Remembering World War I in Delaware.
