Ferriero talks about archiving presidential records

Watch or listen to Truth, Tweets, and Tomorrows — featuring Archivist of the United States David S. Ferriero in conversation with journalist Tom Weber. Ferriero, the 10th Archivist of the United States, is responsible for the vast holdings of the National Archives which contains both the treasures of democracy and the everyday correspondence of presidents and public servants — the momentous and the mundane and even the Presidential Libraries. Tom Weber has been an award-winning journalist for two decades, most recently for Minnesota Public Radio news. In his 10 years at MPR, he covered education and co-hosted the talk show “The Daily Circuit” before becoming host of his own show in 2014. That show, “MPR News with Tom Weber,” focused on important issues in the news in Minnesota. This event, held May 17, 2019 at the University of Minnesota, was sponsored by the Friends of the University of Minnesota Libraries.
