Meet the Sarnoff Archivists

The CLIR grant funded two project archivists to process the David Sarnoff Library collection. The project concluded in early 2017.

Daniel Michelson was the Project Archivist in the Manuscripts & Archives Department. He holds an M. A. in Archives and Public History from New York University and a B. A. in History and Education from Hampshire College. Daniel was most recently employed as Processing Archivist at the Michigan Tech Archives and Copper Country Historical Collections and has previously worked at several archives in New York City, including the Tamiment Library and Robert F. Wagner Labor Archives.

Kenneth Cleary was the Project Archivist in the Audiovisual and Digital Initiatives Department. He received his M.A. in American History before going on to receive his M.L.I.S. with a focus on archives and digital libraries, both from Rutgers University. Before coming to Hagley, Kenneth was employed for two years as a Processing Archivist at the New Jersey State Archives, and has also worked for several other archives in New Jersey, including the Historical Society of Haddonfield and Rutgers University Special Collections and University Archives.

Daniel and Kenneth were supported by the regular staff of all the departments of Hagley’s Library Division, as well as by graduate assistants and volunteers.
