Maurita Baldock, one longtime member, jaunty in red-tinged glasses and an asymmetrical haircut, keeps watch by day over records that document American history as the curator of manuscripts at the New-York Historical Society. Included among them is a frank letter that Gen. George Washington wrote in 1782, before stretch jeans hit the scene. In it, he begs his tailor to make his britches “roomy in the seat and not tight in the thigh.”

Another librarian (well, in this case, archivist) trend piece. Thanks, NYT, for describing this woman’s asymmetrical hair, another’s nose stud, and a third’s “thick-rimmed hipster glasses.” The public has really been served by this hard-hitting reporting.
(That being said, archivists are awesome.)
