Digitized Research Notes from Faragher’s Daniel Boone Now Available Online

Andrew Offenburger announced on H-West recently about his project launch for the digitization of the research notes of historian John Mack Faragher when he was working on his book Daniel Boone: The Life and Legend of an American Pioneer (Henry Holt & Co., 1992). The research notes, when analyzed in relation to the final printed publication, are useful for those interested in how history is crafted.

Re: Follow-Up to ANN: Records Destruction Request from U.S. Department of the Interior (2 Nov 2018)

Why would they not reduce these records, especially those on politics and history to digital formats or dvd's instead. A space saving would justify that but loss of records totally does not.

Are their State sources to take over the records in their archives ?

Follow-Up to ANN: Records Destruction Request from U.S. Department of the Interior (2 Nov 2018)

Dear colleagues, 

Let me first send my appreciation to those of you who have followed up, with NARA and/or myself, regarding my post of November 2, 2018, in which I alerted H-Net readers to news of a records disposition request from the U.S. Department of the Interior that I found startling. This is, to my mind, a much-needed conversation. 

I write now to, first, let you know that the deadline for public comments has been extended to November 26 (see original announcement for further details).
