I have personal ties to recent advocacy issues. Funding for my first job as an archivist came from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC). The person who hired me, Dr. Robert M. Warner, was later appointed Archivist of the United States. When I assumed my first management position, I turned to NHPRC for grant funds to develop a records management and archives program. My predecessor in my current position was former Archivist of the U.S. Dr. James B. Rhoads.
