"a voyage of discovery"

The Milford Daily News has an article on the interns from Dean College working with the Franklin Historical Commission.
"It’s gratifying for the historical commission in that the materials are not just sitting there: people are creating new knowledge," he said, adding "I like it as a history professor because my students are getting some real world experience." 
Alan Earls, a member of the commission, said that the intern’s scholarly exuberance freshens up the monotonous inventory process. 
"The thought is that students can bring their academic capabilities into it," Earls said. "We welcome the hands and minds." 
He added, "We hope to do more with Dean. They have a great history program there and a strong connection with the town."
