The Chevy Chase Historical Society (CCHS), a nonprofit membership organization, has been collecting material relevant to the area for 35 years. The CCHS archives represent a unique resource for scholars, students, and residents of Chevy Chase, Maryland, one of the earliest planned streetcar suburbs in the United States. The archives contain approximately 15,000 photographs; 400 maps; more than 100 oral histories; a variety of documents types including memoirs, municipal records, personal papers, letters, and yearbooks; a noncirculating reference library; and a vertical file of pamphlets, clippings, and other materials. CCHS is searching for a Director of its Archive and Research Center.
The Director is paid on an hourly basis for approximately 30 hours per week. The starting contract rate is $25 per hour. The Archive and Research Center is open to the public on Tuesdays, from 10:00 am to noon and 1:00 to 3:00 pm. The Director must be at the Center during those hours to greet and assist visitors and researchers. Occasional evening and weekend hours will be required. The schedule for the remaining hours is flexible and open to negotiation. The Director reports to the CCHS President, the Archives Committee, and the Board of Directors.
