Society of American Archivists
Council Resolution



WHEREAS Meg Moss has worked behind-the-scenes to assist SAA in producing high-quality publications since 1988; and

WHEREAS she is a keen copyeditor who has meticulously polished American Archivist content for 30+ years; and 

WHEREAS she has plied her craft under six different journal editors, all of whom give her high marks and recommended her services to their successor; and

WHEREAS her extraordinary level of style consistency across the pages of SAA’s scholarly journal would be the envy of any organization; and

WHEREAS her zeal for the Oxford comma, footnote punctuation, and the use of em dashes make her the authoritative enforcer of SAA’s style bible, The Chicago Manual of Style; and

WHEREAS she has also lent her eagle eyes to the copyediting of SAA books, most recently several volumes in the Archival Fundamentals Series III and Archival Values: Essays in Honor of Mark A. Greene; and

WHEREAS she has done this work from her home in rural Indiana and never gets to bask in the fruits of her SAA labor;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Council of the Society of American Archivists recognizes and thanks Meg Moss for her skillful copyediting and outstanding service to SAA and the archives profession.
