Coming up Sunday on Q&AArchivist 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. 

Tune in at 8 pm ET Sunday on C-SPAN.

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?"
