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.
