|The staff of the South Caroliniana Library expanded in the fall of 1999 with the arrival of three new employees. |
Kate Moore, the new processing archivist at Modern Political Collections, moved to Columbia in August from the Washington, DC, area, where she worked for five years in the Gallery Archives of the National Gallery of Art. Moore graduated from the University of Alabama in 1986 with a B.A. in history. Following a two-year stay in Atlanta, she returned to Alabama and completed most of the course work required for a master's degree in history before taking the position in Washington.
Sam Fore recently joined the Library as the technical assistant in the Manuscripts Division after eight years of service as a noncommissioned officer in the U. S. Army Judge Advocate General's Corps. A native of Union County, South Carolina, he graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1990 with a B.A. in history.
William J. ("Joe") Long has started work on the recently funded photograph preservation and access grant. Long is a Georgia native who began his college education with two years at the Naval Academy and went on to acquire a B.A. in English from the University of Georgia and an M.A. in history (augmented with archival studies) at Georgia College and State University. He worked for Mercer University's Main Library, first as a book repair technician and later as a circulation staff member.
