Archivist Spotlight

Adam Luke is our Archivist at BYU-Idaho Special Collections & Archives. You may ask, “What is an archivist?” An archivist is someone that acquires, arranges, and describes historical materials. (i.e. videos, photos, documents, etc.). Brother Luke did not always know he wanted to become an archivist. In his younger years, he ranged from wanting to be a college football player to an astronaut. Too small for football, he studied history at BYU, and through research in special collections his interest was piqued. Brother Luke continued his education at USU, obtaining his MS in history. He later went on to library school at the University of Texas at Austin, graduating with his MSIS. He now lives in Idaho with his wife, Nadine, waiting for NASA to request the first Mars-chivist.
