Great piece, thank you! Archivists are among our great unsung heroes.

Thanks for the article and sharing about the important work Coleman does. I am really surprised by the fact that state funding for the purchasing budget has not changed since 1987 - $40,000. It's been almost 25 years. Think about inflation and how prices have gone up! It's great that he got something for free which he couldn't get for $750. Maybe Coleman could post a wish list on the MHS website and list all the things he wishes MHS could have. The citizens in Minnesota and the good people around the country might be willing to donate them to MHS. Good luck!
