Here’s a blast from the past: we recently ran across the short-lived but much loved in-house comic strip The Archivist and the Aardvark. Created by Michael R Allen it was first published in an internal staff newsletter in 1976. It then appeared to the public in Archeion – the Newsletter of the State Archives [Issue No. 5 June 1987, Archives Authority of NSW].
I wonder why there aren’t more comic strips about archivists?
