Todd Ellison is the Records Administrator for the City of Durango, where he has been assisting (from the records side) with the management of millions of City records in hard copy and electronic formats since 2009.  He previously spent 18 years establishing the archival program of the Southwest Studies Center at Fort Lewis College and teaching about it there as a full tenured professor and a Certified Archivist, which included providing digital access to records on the website he developed there at the start of the Internet age, and guiding the design of the new building and then personally moving two linear miles of special collections books, records and artifacts into the new $8 million 50,000 square foot facility. 

 Todd’s previous professional experience included a pilot project to provide public access to photos: the Boulder (Colorado) Public Library was one of the first in the nation to present digital images in a mainstream public access catalog, over 30 years ago.  A graduate of Middlebury College in Vermont, his archival graduate level training was at the University of Maryland, where he earned two master’s degrees in two years.  Both institutions honored him with their awards for the best history research paper/thesis.  Todd enjoys kayaking and has always liked to make bicycling part of his work day; during his graduate study years he biked a thousand miles in southern Africa to do his thesis research in archival repositories—similar to the travels of the elephant’s child in Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories for Little Children, though not all the way to the Limpopo River.
