Historian Allen Weinstein, most recently ninth Archivist of the United States, has joined the faculty of the University of Maryland, College of Information Studies – Maryland’s iSchool – as a visiting professor. Dr. Weinstein resigned his post as Archivist this past December.
In announcing Weinstein’s appointment Dean Jennifer Preece stated: “We are honored to have Professor Allen Weinstein join the iSchool. He will challenge our students and faculty intellectually and substantially add to our growing reputation. Reading Allen’s biography is inspiring; he has achieved and contributed so much as Archivist, leading historian and promoter of world peace and democracy. Allen will help us to reach out to leading figures in Washington and beyond.”
