SAA: Nine New SAA Fellows Honored at DC 2006 Meeting (Aug 2006), 1 Aug 2006 [cached]
The 2006 "class" of SAA Fellows: Nancy McCall, Gregor Trinkaus-Randall, Wilda Logan, Philip Eppard, Tom Connors, Elisabeth Kaplan, Fred Honhart, Diane Vogt-O'Connor, and Peggy Adams.
Margaret (Peggy) O'Neill Adams, Thomas J. Connors, Philip B. Eppard, Frederick L. Honhart, Elisabeth Kaplan, Wilda Logan, Nancy McCall, Gregor Trinkaus-Randall, and Diane Vogt-O'Connor were named Fellows of the Society of American Archivists on August 4, 2006, during the Joint Annual Meeting of SAA, the Council of State Archivists, and the National Association of Government Archives and Records Administrators in Washington, D.C. Hundreds of conference attendees attended the ceremony in a ballroom at the Washington Hilton Hotel to salute the nine new Fellows.
ELISABETH KAPLAN is university archivist and co-director of the University Digital Conservancy at the University of Minnesota.As one nominator noted, "In a relatively short period of time, Kaplan has made significant contributions to SAA and to the archival profession that outstrip what most archivists achieve in a lifetime."
In her capacity as co-chair of the Program Committee for SAA's 2005 Annual Meeting, Kaplan introduced a new feature called the "Archives Seminar" track: consecutive sessions on focused, intensive discussion of a range of new or especially complex topics that archivists face today.The proof of their success has been the high attendance at these intellectually challenging sessions.
Kaplan, who holds BA and MA degrees in history and archival methods from the University of Massachusetts-Boston, has wide and varied research interests: digital archives, visual records, ethnicity, science and technology, postmodernism.She was the principal investigator on "Documenting Internet2: A Collaborative Model for Developing Electronic Records Capabilities in the Small Repository," a 2005 grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC).In 2001, she was a Fellow in the NHPRC Electronic Records Research Program.
As her nominators noted, Kaplan has enriched the professional literature, conferences, and the archives profession with a "keen intelligence," "sense of humor," and "superb interpersonal skills."

In another example, the University archives were stored in a corner of Walter Library, according to Elisabeth Kaplan, co-director of the University Digital Conservancy and a university archivist. Yet the storage space in Walter Library wasn't exactly the best place for stored records.
"It was awful," Kaplan says.
The University archives, for example contains documents like minutes of Senate Committee hearings, faculty papers, unpublished faculty correspondence, information on enrollment and "a lot of material on athletics," according to Kaplan.
"It's much easier to control the climate underground," Kaplan says.
"The libraries are being very careful about selecting the material that comes in," Kaplan says.
