Winner of the 2016 Archives Short Fiction Contest!

The winner of SAA’s second Archives Short Fiction Contest is Marcella Huggard for her short story, “Family Stories.” 

The jury noted that Huggard's submission addresses issues in the archival profession through a moving story of sifting through the evidence and reminders left behind by relatives after death. Her story speaks to the process of appraisal and its conundrums and how personal relationships can provide perspective.
