Historian and Mystery Novelist Is First Woman to Head National Archives

From a Washington Post story by Michael E. Ruane headlined “Historian and mystery novelist is first woman to head Archives”:

Colleen J. Shogan, a former senior official at the Library of Congress and the White House Historical Association, and the author of a series of murder mysteries set in Washington, was confirmed Wednesday by the Senate to become the first woman to head the National Archives.

The National Archives and Records Administration said she will start work next week as the 11th archivist of the United States. She succeeds David S. Ferriero, who retired in April 2022, and Debra Steidel Wall, who has been acting archivist for the past 12 months.
