Congratulations, Marty! Kudos.
Martin T. Olliff, assistant archivist for electronic media in the
Archives and Manuscripts Department of the Ralph B. Draughon Library at
Auburn University, Alabama, received the Society of Georgia Archivists
David B. Gracy II Award. The Provenance editorial board selected
Olliff's article, "Documenting Industry and Labor in Alabama: Can a
Documentation Strategy Model Work?," as the best in the 1998 issue of
the journal. Board members cited his work as a good case study and
extension of other appraisal and documentation strategy articles
Provenance and other archival journals have published in the past.
Almost as important, Olliff places his project within the larger context
of documentation strategy theory and practice and does so in a very
clear way. Named for the founder and first editor of Provenance, the
Gracy Award is presented to the author of the best article in each issue
of the society's annual publication.
