Summer and fall were devoted to organizing decades of work and preparing them for curation at the Indiana Historical Society and the Digital Repository at Bracken Library at Ball State University.
Digital tapes of now historic episodes of life that were the substance of a life in broadcast journalism. Journalism is called the first draft of history. Melancholy is a companion of sorting through the stuff of a life.
Now collections management experts and archivists will handle a body of work and I trust historians, researchers and writers will find trailings of a time and culture and moments that once were important, or so they seemed. History rules when it comes to perspective.
The bulk of the work has been sent. I have a few files, copy, research, clippings that I tarry over now and soon they too will take wing to find a home with other old stuff, for use again, in the future.
See you down the trail.
