History and Origins of SIA

Indiana archivists attending the 1971 Society of American Archivists meeting in San Francisco acknowledged the need for an organization and clearing house for archival problems at the local level. From their first meeting of January 15, 1972, the six founding Society of Indiana Archivists members began the task of building an organization that would bring together not only professional archivists, but librarians, manuscript curators, university personnel, local historical society members, and other persons interested in historic document preservation in the state.
