Archival records in Georgia are not the only ones which are currently at risk. I was alerted to this issue through SAA. Ruskin College at Oxford holds a great deal of union and labor related records. Unfortunately for historians, genealogists, and archivists everywhere, the principal of the college has used the excuse of needing to move forward as a reason to order the destruction of many of Ruskin’s records. Here is an article on the issue along with a petition which you can sign. Please spread this information. Administrators and others in power believe it is ok to destroy the history of the people. Let them know that a world without a past is not the world in which you want to live.
