From the first time John Harry heard about the Smithsonian beer initiative he made it a goal to intern with that office. Smithsonian National Museum of American History (NMAH)  intern John Harry was determined to intern with beer historian Theresa McCulla, who works with the Smithsonian American Brewing History Initiative. Harry took initiative by emailing McCulla a couple of times and submitting a resume. This resulted in an interview and ultimately becoming an intern with McCulla. Harry believes that the history of beer mirrors the history of the country, which is why is so passionate about the internship.
