Jeremy Collins

Director of Conferences and Symposia

As a student pursuing his history degree at the University of Missouri, Jeremy joined The National WWII Museum in 2001 as an intern with the Collections & Exhibits Department. There, he immersed himself in the artifacts and stories that made up the Museum’s collection. He was involved with many of the Museum’s special exhibitions and co-curated the special exhibition When Baseball Went to War. In 2008, he moved to the Travel & Conference Department, and was involved with most aspects of the travel program, including tour design, development, and content. This saw him scout, lead, or manage tours all over the world including the Philippines, the Mediterranean, England, and Northwest Europe. Jeremy also oversees the creation, planning, marketing, and execution of many of the Museum marquee public programs, including book launches, distinguished lectures, symposia, and the Museum’s annual International Conference on World War II. As a member of the Jenny Craig Institute for the Study of War and Democracy, Jeremy provides public programming of the highest caliber to the Museum’s audience, both physical and digital.
