Abstract (Summary)
This paper is a content analysis of the "American Archivist," the journal of the "Society of American Archivists." Eight volumes of the journal were analyzed to review the decade by decade thematic and structural evolution of the journal from its foundation in 1938 to the present. Analysis was conducted to determine if the journal had fulfilled its initial requirement “to be as useful as possible to all members of the profession.”
