Professional Election

This spring I was elected vice-president/president-elect of the Academy of Certified Archivists. Established in 1989, the ACA serves as the certifying organizations for archivists throughout the United States. Of the twenty-seven presidents, I will be only the sixth who has been president of both the Society of American Archivists and the Academy of Certified Archivists.

Also, last December we were notified that we were the recipients of a two-year National Endowment for the Humanities Division of Preservation and Access grant to develop the curriculum for and launch a series of five workshops (Risk Assessment, Disaster Planning, Disaster Response, a Live Burn, and Salvage) to be co-developed and co-taught by members of the cultural heritage and the firefighting communities. The aim of the workshops is to encourage a close working relationship between the cultural heritage community and first responders when dealing with disasters. The workshops will be offered at five locations around Massachusetts beginning in September 2017 and ending in August 2018.

Finally, my wife, Vickery, and I will again be riding in the Pan-Mass Challenge from Wellesley to Provincetown the first weekend in August to raise money for cancer research at the Dana Farber Institute in Boston, especially since our daughter has been battling cancer for the past five and a half years.

Frequently Asked Questions

Upon graduating from Deerfield, alumni enter a diverse network of former Deerfield students. Deerfield alumni have ventured into almost every area of employment, and many are at the top of their respective fields. The advantages of this vast network are numerous and significant, as every member of the Deerfield family receives the following:

Alumni are also eligible for alumni awards, such as the Ashley Award, Heritage Award, and the Mimi Morsman Award.

There are no membership fees or dues for members of the Deerfield family, but Deerfield does ask for assistance in a few areas. First of all, in order for Deerfield to have the most up-to-date records possible, we encourage members to keep us apprised of their current contact info. Alumni are also urged to direct all concerns and suggestions regarding Deerfield’s operations through the Executive Committee, the governing body of the Alumni Association. The committee acts as the voice of the alumni body, and works closely with the school administration. In order to keep tuition affordable and the quality of a Deerfield education at its highest, the Academy depends upon the continuing support of alumni and their families. This support can take the form of annual or capital gifts, or time spent volunteering on behalf of Deerfield.

There are regional events in many major American cities. Please visit here for more information on regional engagement. 

Of course! Be sure to read the latest issue of From Albany Road in your email’s in-box for current news of what is happening on campus. As we also send out periodic invitations, it’s always best to make sure we have your current physical address. And if you do plan on visiting campus, why not tell us ahead of time?
