Wisconsin's State Archivist Matt Blessing presented Swiss Center President Beth Zurbuchen with the 2014 Governor's Award for Archival Achievement during Swiss National Day Volksfest celebrations in New Glarus, WI this past Sunday.
The Swiss Center's nomination was chosen above others due to our work developing a significant research collection on Swiss-American heritage.
The Wisconsin Historical Society states "The Archival Achievement Award recognizes a historical records repository's outstanding work in preserving and providing access to Wisconsin's historical records." Read more here.
"I am deeply honored that archival experts recognized the work we've done to preserve our story and that our Donald G. Tritt Archive and Library is a valuable resource providing a deeper understanding of heritage through preserved and accessible records that document our diverse and rich history," Zurbuchen said.
