Sarah Wade is Ezra Gillis University Archives Fellow

Sarah Wade
Sarah Wade recently joined the Special Collections Research Center as the Ezra Gillis University Archives Fellow. She will spend three months processing the Ron Eller papers. 

Sarah recently relocated to Lexington from Chicago, where she was a librarian and archivist at the Museum of Contemporary Art. She received her master’s degrees in library science and art history from Pratt Institute in New York, where she pursued coursework focused on cultural history and special collections, and earned an advanced certificate in archives. As a new resident of Kentucky, Sarah is particularly excited to have the opportunity to process the Ron Eller papers, as it is a collection which will allow her to learn more about the culture and history of both the university and the Applachian region. 

UK Libraries is able to offer this fellowship through the support of the Ezra Gillis family and their commitment to preserving the university’s history. The Ezra Gillis University Archives Fellow is selected each summer to conduct a professional archives project, usually post-graduate, focusing on University Archives collections. Last year’s fellow, Margaret Joyce, processed and prepared a finding aid for the Ezra Gillis papers.
