About Abigail

I am the Processing Archivist for the Mark O. Hatfield Archives & Special Collections. I arrange, describe, and preserve archival collections of different formats, including born-digital, audiovisual, photographs, and documents. I also enjoy collaborating with students, faculty, staff, and researchers on their interests and projects. In my free time, I like to read, hike, paint, travel, and go to antique stores.
