Daniel J. Linke, Adjunct Faculty
Daniel J. Linke received bachelors and master’s degrees from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, and worked at three archival repositories (Cleveland History Center, the University of Oklahoma, and the New York State Archives) before starting at Princeton University in 1994. First serving as the Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library’s assistant archivist for technical services, he was promoted in July 2002 to his current position, the University Archivist and Curator of Public Policy Papers. He is responsible for overall operations of the Mudd Library, including acquisitions, donor relations, public services, technical services, records management, fundraising, outreach, building operations, and staff supervision (14 FTE). This work encompasses two collections: the Princeton University Archives and the 20th Century Public Policy Papers that contain a combined 700 collections exceeding 40,000 l.f. Within the policy papers, he has acquired over 100 collections including the papers of U.S. Senator Bill Bradley, civil rights and Watergate lawyer John Doar, former Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker, and the records of the UN-sponsored Women’s World Banking. Within the Archives, he successfully advocated for two new positions: records manager and digital archivist. With both collections, he has overseen the digitization of over two million documents.
