“President Nixon left behind five to six thousand hours of Oval Office tapes. It would take a conscientious biographer three to four years just to listen to all of them. The challenge going forward will focus less on finding material, than in identifying the material that matters.”
~ H.W. Brands, University of Texas-Austin
Love this quote in a story yesterday in the New York Times about organizing one’s photos and memorabilia and writing one’s memoir. Editors are an under-appreciated resource.
