Randy Head ’74

This July, Cambridge University Press published my latest book, a history of record keeping in Europe from 1400-1700. Indirectly inspired by the digital revolution, it looks at how changes in making, keeping and using documents helped support the rise of modern societies and politics. Meanwhile, I’m just back from the Canary Islands, where I served as an outside examiner for the approval of a PhD dissertation at the University of La Laguna. What fun (even if that meant reading 400-pages of Spanish first… good thing Thacher did such a good job with its Spanish classes)!
