Partners in Success 2011-12
The Archives Partnership Trust finished another banner year in 2011–12.
A statewide organization committed to promoting New York’s history through preserving and making available its incredible archival collections, the Trust has established a membership program that supports the work of the State Archives throughout New York. Last year, the Trust’s membership surpassed 3,200 and continues to grow.
Programs that underscored the importance of New York’s past highlighted
our offerings for citizens around the state. Ongoing programs included the
Larry J. Hackman Research Residencies, the annual Archives Awards, our partnership
lectures with the Cooper Union in New York City and the Chautauqua Institution
in western New York, publication of New York Archives magazine, and sponsorship
of the Conference on New York State History and the Researching New York
conference. New programs developed during 2011 and 2012 featured an innovative
regional NPR series that broadcast and discussed the great speeches of the
past 100 years, a commemorative lecture on the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory
Fire of 1911, and a lecture in Saratoga Springs on Commodore Vanderbilt.
The year concluded with a nearly sold-out Empire State Archives and History
Award event that honored Robert Caro, the biographer of both LBJ and New
York’s Robert Moses.
As robust as the Trust’s schedule was during this period, as we closed out the year plans for 2012–13 were more ambitious yet. We thank our members for their ongoing support, which makes our work possible.
