Archives Services have been supporting The Working Archive – a year-long archive awareness campaign for Scotland launched in April 2013. The Working Archive aims to encourage archives, their users and the public at large to celebrate the heritage of Scotland’s businesses – the stories of individual Scottish companies; the records of products that were produced or manufactured in Scotland and exported around the world; and the archival legacy of working Scots of all kinds, whether in business, farming, healthcare, education, the church or government.
The Working Archive is celebrating the people behind the records by encouraging archivists to share stories about extraordinary working lives through a campaign blog. From today, visitors to the blog can read all about Fred H. Young: Welfare and Recreation at Templeton & Co. Ltd which features records from our Stoddard-Templeton collection.
This post was written by one of our Club 21 volunteers, Fiona after she spent time in the repository this summer researching business archives collections.
