Please join us Wednesday, November 15th as Chuck Rand, professional archivist and Old Bristol Historical Society Co-President, discusses the proper care and handling of personal family documents and photos. His talk will focus on the factors that cause deterioration and will offer specific suggestions and materials to help you prolong the life of your family treasures.
Chuck Rand began his professional life as an historical archaeologist in the summer of 1972 following his first year as an undergraduate studying anthropology/archaeology at the University of Maine. After acquiring an M.A. in history, he moved to the Washington, DC area and became affiliated with the Smithsonian Institution and its National Museum of American History where his duties included collections management and photography.
Mr. Rand obtained an M.L.S. from the University of Maryland and moved to Oklahoma where he held a number of positions related to information services including Curator of the Political Commercial Archive at the University of Oklahoma. His tenure as Director of the Dickinson Research Center at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum was rewarding and enabled him to employ all the skills and abilities he had developed to that point and some, such as oral history interviewing, videography and video-editing, that he learned and developed on the job.
The Kennebec Historical Society November Presentation is free to the public (donations gladly accepted) and will take place on Wednesday, November 15, 2017, at 6:30 p.m. at the South Parish Congregational Church located at 9 Church Street in Augusta.
