The state of Georgia has decided to close the their State Archives to the public. My understanding is that they will be the only state without a public archives. This is sad and disturbing to those who try and keep the past alive.
Dick Eastman posts the statement from Jared S. Thomas, Press Secretary for Brian P. Kemp, Secretary of State for Georgia in his post Georgia State Archives to be Closed to the Public!
You can sign the petition here: The Governor of GA: Leave our state archives open to the public.
We know the squeaky wheel gets the grease. 🙂
