The Archival staff is pleased to announce the addition of 2 well qualified persons to assist in the business of the archives;
Prof. Albert Whitenberg, archives teacher and doctoral candidate,as well as IT director, at Middle Tennessee State University has volunteered to be an archival assistant and process material for the depository. He is currently working on 3 collections from closed churches.
David Martin, member of both the Historical Society and the Commission on Archives and History (CAH) has volunteered to be a researcher.
While neither of these men can help make the open hours of the depository more consistent, they will help create better access to the material we have.
We also have the benefits of the services of Heather Adkins, a Public History/Archives graduate student, also from Middle Tennessee State University. Ms. Adkins works at the Albert Gore Research Center and is doing practicum work for the Conference by evaluating and reprocessing collection material, and working on the production of finding aids.
In addition to the above mentioned folk, we have several other students from the Public History graduate program at MTSU who may do practicum work for us.
