Nero had an Archivist?

Yep, according to this article. I can imagine that, even in today's world of tight budgets, staff cuts, and impending drafts, that working for a possibly unstable emperor would have been, say, less than fun.

Also, October is American Archives Month. So stop by your local archives and check them out! Even if you don't find anything fabulous, you'll bump up their monthly statistics, and the staff will love you for it.

It must have been tough to be an archivist without the wonders of the Paige Miracle box. Also without: moveable type, cheaply produced paper, employment law, etc.

At least they didn't have to deal with rusty staples and paperclips, fax machine paper, and the like.
