Too often the pressure of the present-day work environment lures archivists into ignoring their professional past or advancing shortsightedly into the future. To encourage such reflection on the archival enterprise, Provenance launches a new feature in this issue, Fresh Focus. This series of occasional essays opens with a survey of Carter Woodson's pioneering efforts to collect the history of African Americans written by Eric N. Johnson, a student in the archival program at the University of Texas.
