AOTUS: Collector in Chief

David S. Ferriero
10th Archivist of the United States

It has been quite a week here at the National  Archives.  Tuesday afternoon an earthquake rattled many of our  facilities around the Northeast.  And just when we thought it was safe  to go back to work, Hurricane Irene heads our way with heavy winds and  downpours.  
Lots of staff contributed to our successful   preparations for the worst, ensuring that the records of our country   were protected, and I am proud of them.  This is very much a “can do”  agency and this past week had demonstrated that over and over.
So, bring on the locusts!
