Speaker: Jefferson Moak, Chief Archivist, Mid-Atlantic NARA
Topic:The Life of Max Einstein >from NARA Records

Jefferson M. Moak of the National Archives and Records
Administration in Philadelphia, has an academic background
in history, public administration, and library science. At NARA
he has been instrumental in the creation of their web-based
public access archival research tool, which included creating
an inventory of thousands of feet of records, making them more
accessible to the public. Previously he was employed at the
City of Philadelphia Archives.

Jeff will tell us about the research undertaken last year in order
to create the Max Einstein exhibit currently at NARA, focusing
not only on how the topic was chosen but also the various
research methods undertaken to create the final exhibit and report.
It is these methods which can be most helpful to us.

Come to the meeting 30 minutes early for a Question and Answer
session preceding the general meeting.
