Way Cool Job Opening !!!

Hello All!

My name is Michelle Moog-Koussa. I am the Executive Director of the
Bob Moog Foundation. located in Asheville, NC. For those of you who
are not familiar with Dr. Moog's work, he was a synthesizer pioneer,
largely credited with inventing the first synthesizer and changing
the face of music forever. Dr. Moog lived and worked in Asheville for
the last 25 years of his life and passed away in August of 2005. We
created the Bob Moog Foundation soon after that and received our non-
profit status in March 2007.

In January of this year, we went through Dr. Moog's extensive
archives, which include 50 years of prototype instruments, photos,
schematics, articles, notes, correspondence, vintage recording
equipment, reel to reel tapes and other historic ephemera.
Unfortunately, Dr. Moog stored this unique, historic and fascinating
collection in a hot, humid buidling out in the country and everything
is covered with mold. Additionally, time has taken its toll on just
about every item. With the help of a core group of dedicated
volunteers, we have moved the most important materials into a climate
controlled storage space in Asheville. We have begun to seek help in
preserving this important collection.

We are presently in the midst of applying for a grant from the Grammy
Foundation to help us restore the reel to reel tapes and the vintage
recording equipment. The Grammy Foundation requires that we find a
qualified archivist to help us with this project. If you are an
interested archivist with knowledge of reel to reel tape
preservation, please contact me immediately.

The grant application is due on October 1st, so time is of the
Please respond at your earliest possible convenience.

Thanks so much for your attention to this matter.
