Twentieth century professionals argued over whether their particular field of study was a science or an art. Modernists preferred science, romanticists and post-modernists fancied art. Archivists, arguably one of the most noble old professions, have had the same debate. As a philosopher-at-heart, I have always seen myself as an artist who unfortunately must be scientific. This approach to life has helped me in my journey toward my archival career.
