American History TV‘s American Archives series recently posted a new YouTube video featuring David S. Ferriero, Archivist of the United States. I first met Ferriero when he was University Librarian at Duke University Libraries, where I work. He left Duke for New York Public Library, before moving on to become Archivist of the U.S. I had the pleasure of hearing Ferriero speak again recently at the Triangle Research Libraries Annual Meeting, where he mentioned the letters he shows in this two-and-a-half-minute video.
