Longtime state employee Jeff Kintop has been named Nevada's new state archivist. Kintop, 58, has been the state archives manager since 1991 and worked in university, state history and archives positions since 1979. He replaces Guy Rocha, who retired in February after 28 years in the position of running the Nevada State Library and Archives.
When his new position becomes effective July 1, Kintop will become the third state archivist since the agency was created in 1965. He will manage a staff of 13 that catalogs and stores records of state and local governments.
"In Nevada, 87 percent of the people were not born here," Kintop said Monday. "They don't know the history. You get a lot of misinformation. It has been fun working with sources to find out what did and did not happen."
