Summary
"This book seeks to understand how archives and archivists in England developed during the 20th century. The author examines the political and legislative context, analyses how archival institutions developed in local and central government, and in businesses and universities, and discusses the growth of the archival profession via formal societies and education and training." "Although the book focuses on 20th century England, developments are traced from the Public Record Office Act in 1838 through to the formation of The National Archives in 2003. In addition, the author briefly discusses the comparative development of archives in continental Europe, the USA, Canada and Australia, thereby providing a context for the history of English archives."--BOOK JACKET
