CAR 25th Anniversary Celebration

The Cleveland Archival Roundtable celebrated 25 years of service activity to the archival community in northeast Ohio on December 10, 2014.  We met in a combined venue of The Sculpture Center and The Artists Archives of the Western Reserve with a full and exiting schedule of events befitting the auspicious occasion.

On the agenda was a presentation of the history and development of our organization, a special introduction to and recognition of our founding members: Nancy Erdy, Carol Tomer,  John Grabowski and Dennis Harrison (unable to attend), our round-robin updates on area archival developments (not the least of which concerned #saa15 updates) and an institutional overview of our host sites complete with a guided tour of the then current exhibits.  In the finest CAR tradition, a delicious selection of treats were provided, capped off with a special anniversary cookie decorated with our coat of arms.
