Earlier this month, we began a new series of brief conversations with library, museum, and archives professionals and volunteers from around New York State.

Jamie has been at the Museum for 12 years and overseen the continued expansion of an archival collection of handwritten journals, service manuals, photographs, and other items that document the history of firefighting, from the lives of the firefighters themselves to the evolution of its tools and its depiction in popular culture and fine art.
