University of Massachusetts, Boston
University Archivist
Boston, MA
I happily serve as University Archivist and Curator of Special Collections at UMass Boston, a great urban public university that sits on the edge of Boston Harbor. I manage the Healey Library's archival research collections and related academic and community-based initiatives including overseeing projects like the “Mass. Memories Road Show”, a long-term initiative to collect and archive images and oral histories related to Massachusetts’ 351 communities, and the “1919 Boston Police Strike Project” which, in collaboration with the Boston Police Department Archives, is working with community volunteers to research the biographies of the 1,100+ policemen who participated in that historic event. I would love to connect with people at DPLA about community archiving, cultural heritage preservation at the local level, and using DPLA as a primary access point for university archival collections and as a source for research instruction with undergraduate and graduate students.
