On May 1st, 2015, the long-time director of the American Heritage Center retired from his post. To honor Mark Greene, the AHC, the Wyoming Institute for Humanities Research, and the university hosted a symposium and a banquet. Our keynote speaker was my dear friend Dr.Peter Blodgett from the Huntington Library in California, who gave an excellent keynote address. During the day, we also heard several great talks by Brian Hosmer, John Rumm, and a number of others from around the state. I happened to be one of those “others,” and presented a little talk about my research for the Gateway Center, which is based very heavily on holdings at the AHC. I also addressed the ways in which I used the resources at the Toppan Rare Books Library for my Civil War class last semester. Overall, it was a great event to honor and bid farewell to an excellent scholar and superstar in the archives profession. The AHC’s Board of Advisors, under the exemplary leadership of board chairman Dave Foreman, and in cooperation with the UW Foundation, have also founded the Mark Greene Excellence Fund, a substantial endowment that will benefit the AHC and its mission for many years to come. I’m proud to call this institution my home!
