There were no changes of personnel in the professional staff, but
there was a name change, from Susan N. Gump to Susan Nettles,
Archivist II in Program 2.


The Archivist continued as a member of the Maryland Historical
Trust and the St. Mary's City Commission by appointments of the
Governor. He also acted as a member of the Maryland Historical
