Though he was only at UNC for a few years, Jay worked successfully to diversify and broaden University Archives’ collections– bringing in faculty papers and records of student organizations. He also devoted countless hours building relationships with many campus and community groups, and we will continue the work he started.

Please continue to contact UARMS at recman@unc.edu or (919) 962-6402 with any questions you have during this transition, and join us in wishing Jay well in this new venture!
