Despite my numerous shortcomings, there is one thing I’m rather proud of: I work, and have been for about three years, in with a historic preservation office of the Osage nation. Amongst all the things I personally do, their is one thing specifically that I put care into like a child are the archival primary documents. These include hand written letters from the 1800’s and even original photographs from the era. Because of this, I feel like I have a decent understanding of what archivists do. I anticipate the Woodie Guthrie archives to be a bastion of organization, structure and implementing tools such as archival paper clips and archival tissue paper. Additionally, I’d like to hope that documents are stored in a climate control area, if not slightly chilled to prevent bacteria and mold from taking hold after previously held in the bowels of other individuals. My questions are first what the most illustrious archival piece in the Woody Guthrie center. Second I would like to know the general time it takes to properly enter pieces into their respective database and if processing speed depends on medium.
