As part of the Career Diversity for Historians initiative, the AHA is producing and making available short videos of historians in unusual places talking about what they do. Previous videos can be found here, and we will unveil more videos over the summer—check back for more!

Today we highlight Jessie Kratz, who works as historian for the National Archives in Washington, DC. To read more about a career in the federal government as a historian, check out “The Lone Historian and the 3.2%”, a previous post in the AHA Career Diversity series.
