Coming up Sunday on Q&A: Archivist of
the United States David Ferriero talks about his accomplishments and
challenges at the Archives and the work that remains for his
successor. Appointed by President Barack Obama and confirmed in 2009,
he is the 10th archivist to oversee the National Archives as
well as the nation's now 15 presidential libraries. During his
tenure, Mr. Ferriero presided over a digital transformation of how
archival material is collected and preserved. Under his leadership,
the Archives debuted "Remembering Vietnam," its first-ever
exhibit on that divisive conflict. Mr. Ferriero, a veteran of that
war, served as a U.S. Navy hospital corpsman. He is retiring this
spring after nearly 13 years in office.
Dr. Thomas Fisher talks about his experience in a
large urban hospital emergency room during COVID-19. He says that at
the end of a shift, he was haunted by the confusion in the eyes of
his patients. In addition, he reflects on a couple of questions that
his patients are probably thinking: "Who is this man treating
them from behind a mask? Why do they have to wait so many hours to be
treated?" Dr. Fisher attempts to answer these questions and many
more in his book The Emergency: A Year of Healing and Heartbreak in a Chicago
ER. Listen now on Booknotes+.
