Tales of the Dark Archivist Presentation_Part 1

Last night was the final event of the New Mexico Historical Society Conference. The 2012 conference was an homage to the road to statehood. Our great state became the 47th state in the Union in 1912 when President William Taft signed New Mexico’s statehood bill on January 6. That same year in Washington D.C., New Mexico’s first congressmen and senators were sworn into office. This year, the Historical Society Conference was excellent. I learned so much from everyone around me. That is one thing that I love about learning— you can never know enough! I had the chance to catch several wonderful presentations. The sessions I attended included: John Collier, the Indian New Deal, and New Mexico; New Mexico’s Constitutional Convention; New Mexico Foodways in History: Hispanic Communities; Culture in New Mexico; Archives and Territorial Tales; New Voices in the Story of New Mexico; and Colonial New Mexicans. These session titles do no justice to the unique presentation titles of each individual in the panel, but I will write about the ones I was taken with later. This is no joke when I say that I recorded over 13 GB of footage from the conference. How many times will New Mexico turn 100? 🙂 If you are interested in watching my 3 part— “weird” presentation, please feel free. I would like to post more footage from the conference as I pull it off my iPod and split the footage into segments (due to YouTube’s length restrictions).
