Video: NARA Posts “A Conversation with David Ferriero, Archivist of the United States”
Archivist of the United State and librarian, David Ferrero, spoke at Penn. St. University on December 5, 2013 and earlier today the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) posted a video recording of the event.
During a conversation with Timothy D. Pyatt, Dorothy Foehr Huck Chair and head of Special Collections in Penn State’s Eberly Family Special Collections, Ferriero said:
“One of the nicest things about being the archivist is sitting as the chair of the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, which is a granting agency within the National Archives. So for the first time in my professional career, I’m giving away money instead of begging for it.”
The video runs one hour and is embedded below.
