Hagley is seeking a full-time project archivist for a two-year effort to process the audiovisual materials in its David Sarnoff Collection.
The position is part of a three-year grant-funded project to make fully accessible to researchers the David Sarnoff Collection, the extraordinary and comprehensive 2,800-linear-foot archive of materials documenting the business dealings of David Sarnoff, pioneer of the media and electronics age. The history of the Radio Corporation of America (RCA) and the founding of the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) are recorded in the collection’s manuscripts, reports, notebooks, publications, photographs, moving images, and sound recordings. RCA’s research & development activities as well as the emerging American consumer culture are also recorded here. They vastly enlarge RCA-related collections already at Hagley.
