My friend, Jeffrey Carter, is spending some holiday time in Washington, DC. I wake every morning to read Jeff’s blog posts, first, before even climbing out of bed. They are a smorgasbord of information, entertainment, education, seriousness, and amusement.
This morning’s offering from the nation’s capital was an extraordinary description of his visit to The National Archives museum. Jeff’s description of the aged national treasures was a sad reminder of how earlier presentations of these documents did not heed preservation efforts. However, it was also an era where conservation and preservation were often not a consideration designed for future generations.
Do take a moment to enjoy Jeff’s hearty description of his time spent in our National Archives and feel free to wander about his wonderful blog.
