Discarding Publlc Records

Sherlock Holmes kept detailed records of ancient crimes to help him investigate new ones. In that spirit, centuries of cases tried at the Old Bailey in London are online, available to both the simply curious and the serious historian.

In contrast, here in the U. S., in the name of cost cutting, the National Archive and Records Administration plans to toss the baby out with the bathwater, by discarding old legal documents without regard to the future, and with little public discussion.

As It is impossible to predict exactly what may be vital information in the future, the destruction of legal records merits our attention.  Click here – http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/ispla/ – to examine a petition addressing this issue
