On this episode, I interviewed Andrew Martinez, RISD Archivist. We discussed how RISD catalogs, stores, and documents everything from the board of trustees' minutes to student drawings dating back to 1877. We also discussed the important work Andrew is doing to orally record all fifty faculty and staff who decided to retire due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Finally, I inquired how RISD purchased the Market House building for $10.00 back in 1948.
