Laura Frizzell joined The National WWII Museum in 2020. Prior to relocating to New Orleans, she earned her master's degree in Information Sciences from the University of Tennessee in 2015. After graduating, she worked as a project archivist in the archives of the Coca-Cola Company in Atlanta, Georgia. Following this experience, she traveled to Palmer, Alaska as a journeywoman archivist before returning to Atlanta, where she became the museum archivist at the David J. Sencer CDC Museum. In this role, she worked specifically on the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) History Project. Laura is excited to be apart of the Curatorial Department at The National WWII Museum, and looks forward to learning more about WWII history while working as the Museum's archivist.
