Greetings! Since my last post I have started a new position as University Archivist/Digital Curator at the University of Winnipeg Archives & Records Centre. This blog will now feature content from the University of Winnipeg Archives but all your favourite content from the University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections will remain on the site.
My new position coincided with the start of Movember and so, my initial UW Archives post is the 3rd Annual Historical Movember Recreation. My colleague, and a fine moustachioed gentleman, Daniel Matthes, has joined me for this year's recreation. Although we have only worked together for a month, I find it hard to believe that with this photo we have not reached the pinnacle of our professions. Daniel's background in theatre is evident throughout every pixel.
Thanks to Brianne Selman for taking the photo and to everyone who supported my Movember campaign, especially my new friends and colleagues at the UofW. I am touched by your generosity. I hope you will recognize me now that I have rid myself of that hideous face rat.
If anyone is interested, it is not too late to make a donation. Please visit my site here.
