Simmons Alum Nominated as U.S. Archivist

President Obama has nominated my fellow Simmons library science alumnus David Ferriero, currently the Andrew W. Mellon Director and Chief Executive of The Research Libraries at The New York Public Library, to be the Archivist of the United States (i.e. head of the National Archives). Ferriero previously was the library director at Duke and worked at the MIT libraries for thirty-one years prior to that.

Neat! And good luck!
