The two-day event "Documenting Leadership: A Symposium on Public Executive Records in the 21st Century" explored the importance of the records generated by high ranking elected government officials, including governors and other elected public executives such as presidents, attorneys general and mayors.

The symposium, held May 20 to 21, was hosted by the New York State Archives Partnership Trust and Albany Law School's Government Law Center.

Panelists included representatives from government, law and the media, as well as historians and public policy researchers. Among the presenters were former Governor of Pennsylvania and U.S. Attorney General Dick Thornburgh (above), nationally renowned presidential historian Richard Norton Smith and former New York State Comptroller Ned Regan.

Sessions included keynote speeches by Dick Thornburgh and Richard Norton Smith and five panel discussions on the topics of Public Policy and the Public Interest; Transparency, Executive Records and the Media; Executive Records: Access and Disclosure; Access in the Digital Age; and Executive Records as Legacy.
