We’re sad to announce that Amanda Wick, previous Archives Director has left her role as Archives Director at THS to move to Minneapolis, MN. Before she left, she wanted to share one last message with the members of THS:
I’m really sad to be leaving THS – there’s so much momentum across the organization! We’ve got volunteers/practicum students from Dominican University’s Graduate School of Library Science processing archival collections four days a week, we’re in the final phase of a repository-wide collection assessment to get a better grasp on the depth of materials in our archive, and we’re initiating a variety of digitization initiatives.
That said, we’ve hired a great guy named Patrick Seymour to take my place and I think he’ll do very well in the position – he’s worked in a number of different archives around Chicago and has great experience and connections. I’ve really enjoyed my time with THS, albeit brief, and know that there’s an amazingly bright future for the Archives and the organization as a whole.
[THS thanks Amanda for all her hard work during her tenure with us!]
But, we’re also really excited to welcome and introduce our new Archives Director, Patrick Seymour to you. Here’s a little more about his background:
