Orange County Archives update

Well, I'm told I won't be getting the Archivist gig after all.

Although I’m disappointed that I didn’t get the job myself, this transition period has been a real eye-opener. I’ve learned just how MANY great friends I have in the historical community, in local government, in archival circles, among our patrons, and among the community in general. With the exception of a few people who I asked to be my references, I didn’t solicit anyone’s support – But BOY did I get it anyway! I’m deeply touched by all of you who have told me that you were pulling for me, praying for me, writing letters of support, etc. You have no idea how much that groundswell of support meant (and means) to me. Thank you!
