AHA in the News, Archives & Records

AHA executive director Jim Grossman was quoted in two Washington Post articles about former president Trump’s violations of the Presidential Records Act. “The problem is that the Presidential Records Act, as written, does not have any real enforcement mechanism,” said Grossman in “‘He Never Stopped Ripping Things Up’: Inside Trump’s Relentless Document Destruction Habits,” adding that the violations are disrespectful to archivists and the general public. “What is the Presidential Records Act, and How Did Trump Violate It?” by Amber Phillips quoted Grossman and cited the AHA’s recent statement condemning violations of the Presidential Records Act.
