The NMSU Library’s University Archivist, Martha Shipman Andrews, has been appointed to the New Mexico Historical Records Advisory Board (NMHRAB) by Governor Susana Martinez.
NMHRAB is New Mexico’s advisory board to the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), a branch of the National Archives and Records Administration.
NMHRAB reviews grant proposals for projects that identify, preserve, increase accessibility to and promote the use of New Mexico’s historical records and documents. These documents chronicle important historical developments, represent the heritage of our state and provide valuable insight into New Mexico’s cultures.
Andrews has been with the NMSU Library since 2004. She came to NMSU from The Madeira School in McLean, Virginia. A graduate of Wellesley College, Andrews received a master’s degree in library and information science with a concentration in archival studies from the University of Pittsburgh.
Andrews edited Out of the Shadows: The Women of Southern New Mexico (Rio Grande Books/NMSU Library, 2012) and The Whole Damned World: New Mexico Aggies at War, 1941-1945: World War II Correspondence of Dean Daniel B. Jett (Rio Grande Books/NMSU Library, 2009).
