Damn. I am a journalism/mass media historian retired from teaching for several years. I would love to have had this archive available to me back when I started that training in 1984, with one of my first graduate courses at the U Iowa in historical methods.

This archive is terribly exciting. I can't wait to see research published from these archives.

And thank you for providing a perfect example of why today's politics desperately needs a whole new generation of historians to ground our understanding of the present movements.
