Abstract

Building on prior work that has examined the formation of southern archives and memory as a form of political endeavor, this article examines the life and early career of Georgia archivist Ruth Blair, first female director of the Georgia Department of Archives and History. Her life story is used as a lens through which to examine the contribution of southern women to the establishment of state archival agencies and in doing so looks at the role of women in the workplace in the first half of the twentieth century, specifically the entry of women into the information professions.
