Theives in the Archives

This post is largely influenced by the recent theft from the Maryland Historical Society as discussed here.

In an op-ed piece in the Baltimore Sun, the article discusses the growing trend of theft from the archives.  The article cites this trend as a result of the “Antique Roadshow era” in which we live.  Because of this and due to higher connectivity because of social media, more and more people are increasingly aware of the valuable material found in archives.

Take this poll and let me know whether or not you believe there has been an increase in thefts from archives:
