Baring Archive Advisory Group welcomes new member
The Baring Archive Advisory Group officially welcomed Clare Paterson as the newest member at their recent meeting.
Clare is Senior Archivist at Glasgow University Archives and Special Collections. The Archives and Special Collections team at Glasgow University have experience in supporting Glasgow University’s Historical Slavery Initiative through the provision of access to records to enable research and in opening up conversations about links to slavery through the Call & Response Exhibition held by the University.
The Baring Archive Advisory Group was established in July 2020 by the Trustees of the Baring Archive to consider, and advise the Trustees on, the records in the Archive that relate to financial activities associated with slavery. It met for the first time in November 2020.
The Advisory Group looks forward to working with Clare and to drawing on her invaluable experience, expertise and perspective as an archivist.
