Receipt of the latest NHPRC e-newsletter today reminded me our mega-talented and very wise past President Peter Gottlieb is our new rep to the Commission. Making such appointments is one of the privileges of the SAA President, and I sure felt fortunate that Peter was willing to serve. He’s one of those members whose passion and influence endures into retirement. He’s also a member of our hard-working Government Affairs Working Group and represented the Society at last summer’s summit of regional archival societies in San Diego. And it’s clear that things archival aren’t his only passion: as his Facebook pal, I’m aware that he recently spent a week in El Salvador helping Habitat for Humanity build houses–and he wouldn’t be a true Wisconsite if he weren’t an avid fisherman!
Thank you, Peter!
