CZECHOSLOVAK SOCIETY OF ARTS AND SCIENCES
Rechcigl Named SVU Archivist
At the January 2007 SVU Executive Board meeting Mila Rechcigl was named a new SVU Archivist. In many ways, it is a logical and fortuitous choice, as Dr. Rechcigl has been at the cradle of the Society and has worked for it ever since - in various offices and functions, including having been SVU President for sixteen years. He also kept for decades the official Society files which had been deposited at the University of Minnesota's IHRC archives. In addition, he has been writing a history of SVU, as a part of his memoirs.
With reference to his new role, he is requesting all current SVU officers not to discard any relevant material relating to their particular SVU function so that they can be deposited in the SVU Archives in IHRC. He also makes the plea to the past officers of the Society to please send SVU documents in their possession, either to him or directly to IHRC. Among the main "Desiderata" are documents from the time of the Presidency of Jiri Nehnevajsa (1984-88), Igor Nabelek (1988-1990) and Jan Triska (1978-80, 1990-92). Wanting are also documents from the past Secretary-Generals, including Milos Kucera (1982-90), Blanka Kudej (1994-96), Vera Ulbrecht (1996-98), Eva Vanek (1998-2000) and Frank Safertal (2000-2006).
