The Holmes Collection

Oliver Wendell Holmes

Oliver Wendell Holmes worked at the National Archives beginning in 1935, serving in many capacities including Executive Director of the National Historical Publications Commission. He served as Fellow of the Society of American Archivists (SAA) from 1948-1951, and the President of the SAA from 1958-1959. He was active in international archival affairs and a promoter of SAA's international outreach efforts.

ALIC acquired this collection through Mary A. Giunta, NHPRC, who acquired the collection from his family when he died. When Ms. Giunta retired, she donated the books to ALIC to be kept in Holmes' memory.

The books are all available in the Library. They cover archival administration, records management, and other archival topics.
