New York Times Article – 54 Drawers “I found a life, in paper”


February 19, 2014

On the topic of how and what we collection there is an eight part series in the New York Times, titled 54 Drawers by Olivia Judson,

A tale of what can happen to all of those things we just cant part with after we've departed.  It begins:

"Back sore, eyes blurry, mind numb. For several hours, I had been sitting on a camping stool beside one of my father’s filing cabinets. Several full bags of recycling sat at my feet, ready for me to take downstairs. No — stop — wait. I have to go through that bag again. There’s a letter in there that I want another look at."

This is the fourth part of an eight-part series.
