NewsGuild Shop Talk: Preserving a Legacy with Jeff Roth and Bill Hooper
Spend an evening at the NewsGuild with Jeff Roth, renowned caretaker of The New York Times's "morgue" of news clippings and photographic prints, and Bill Hooper, archivist to "America's attic" at Time Inc. These archivists have some of the most interesting jobs in media: protecting and preserving the legacies of journalism, of history, and of two iconic media companies. Wall Street Journal photo editor Margaret Keady will moderate a discussion about the importance of preserving work in a digital age, as well as the evolution of the task of archiving over the years.
