No Innocent Deposits: Forming Archives by Rethinking Appraisal

Richard J. Cox 


2005 SAA Waldo Gifford Leland Award

The increase of public interest in the past has not necessarily brought with it a greater understanding -- by the public or scholars -- about how archives are formed. To this end, Richard J. Cox takes a serious look at how archival repositories and collections come to be.

No Innocent Deposits, which borrows its title from a description of archives by an oral historian, suggests that archives do not just happen, but are consciously shaped (and sometimes distorted) by archivists, the creators of records, and other individuals and institutions. In this series of essays, Cox offers an archivist's rare insight into the fundamentals of appraisal, and gives historians and other users of archives the opportunity to appreciate the collections they all too often take for granted.
