Re: Patron Saint for archivists
Many saints are claimed by more than one group. Jerome
is the patron saint of librarians (and others). Lawrence is the patron
saint of archivists but is often referred to as "Lawrence the
Librarian." Catherine is the patron saint of, inter alles,
librarians, archivists, philosophers and more.

I thought that St. Jerome was the
patron saint of librarians; St. Lawrence was the patron saint of
ARCHIVISTS; and Saint. Catherine is new to me. I spent a lot
of time finding a medal for St. Lawrence so I hope we did not change
saints. Visual Resources Librarian

Does anyone know if there is a patron saint of archives and archivists?
If not, does anyone have any recommendations for a saint to adopt?
Please feel free to respond to this off of the list.
