Abstract

Amid the losses of library and archival records that were sustained in the Lisbon earthquake of 1755, the director-general of the national archive of Portugal, Manoel da Maya, played an inspirational role in salvage and preservation efforts. Maya’s determination, dedication, and resourcefulness in the aftermath of the earthquake were exemplary and in the best traditions of practice as an archivist.
