Charles A. Sherrill (M.A., M.L.S.) is State Librarian and Archivist of Tennessee. His education includes master's degrees in History and Library Science from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. He began his career in the archives of the Western Reserve Historical Society in Cleveland, Ohio. Subsequently, he spent 18 years as a public library director, first in Cleveland, Tennessee and then in Brentwood. During that time he Sherrill pursued his lifelong interest in local history and genealogy, publishing or editing more than 20 volumes of Tennessee records. His special area of interest is the remote and rather wild county of Grundy, where many of his ancestors lived. This evidently led to one of his larger publication projects, the two-volume "Tennessee Convicts: Early Records of the State Penitentiary.
Sherrill has been active in library work as well as historical research. He served as president of the Tennessee Library Association and is a long-time board member of Tenn-Share, the state's resource-sharing organization for libraries. In community work he is a graduate of Leadership Brentwood and former chair of Youth Leadership Brentwood. He currently serves on the Historic Commissions of both Brentwood and the State of Tennessee. He has taught an online genealogy course for Jackson State Community College for the past 8 years.
Chuck will talk with us about the work of the Tennessee State Library and Archives, a little-known but very active part of state government.
