Join us Saturday, April 2nd at the New England Archivists Spring 2016
Meeting to hear Wes Cowan, star of PBS's Antique Roadshow and History
Detectives, speak on lessons he learned as a collector, researcher, and
advocate to archives and archivists across the country.

After becoming a regular on the popular PBS Antiques Roadshow nearly two
decades ago, Wes Cowan had his star turn when he became one of the History
Detectives, a show that spawned a new genre of television that brought
history and archives into our everyday lives. As a history detective, Cowan
has consulted archives around the country while piecing together
long-forgotten stories, and by doing so introduced the significance of
historical records to the general public in an entertaining and captivating
way.
