For nearly 40 years, Ed Papenfuse has been the Archivist of the State of Maryland. He’s been a leader in the movement to digitize archives in Maryland and around the country. As a well-known historian, he’s published several books and given countless lectures on a variety of topics related to the history of our state. He has taught courses at the University of Maryland College Park, the University of Maryland Law School, and The Johns Hopkins University. He oversaw the construction of the State Archives Building, which was completed in 1986. That building is named after him. Ed Papenfuse will retire from that position at the end of this month. He joins Tom Hall to talk about his nearly 40 years at the helm of the Archives.
