Quotable Friday continues as we highlight another individual who responded as part of our participation in the Society of American Archivists Call to Action #5: Why do Archives Matter?
“Archives are important because they are the records that are kept for any number of subjects. It gives a clear written history that can be recalled when information is needed. I am interested in archives because I think it is so important for people to be able to have documents from the past to call on. It gives people a chance to find out things about their own personal family history or even the history of the town they live in. Without the keeping and organizing of these records there would not be anything for people to rely on for historical purposes.” ~Local Government Employee
