      Hey Sierra Friends!

      I just wanted to share with you all some amazing news passed on to me today. Apparently the Williams’ just donated an immense amount of material to be archived at The Strong Museum of Play. The press release is available here:

      http://www.thestrong.org/press/releases/2011/09/3789-ken-roberta-williams-donate-major-sierra-line-collection-icheg

      The press release summarizes the holdings as “hundreds of items, including approximately 140 games, plus game design documents, artwork, newspaper articles, memorabilia, photographs, copies of Sierra’s company magazine Interaction, business records, press releases, catalogs, annual reports, and other materials […]”

      I imagine this will be important material for the Art of Sierra, and all the rest of you who have interests in archival/research projects involving Sierra. This is particularly a big deal because there has been no prior effort to preserve Sierra artifacts on an institutional archival level, and Sierra is regularly misrepresented or ignored in contemporary video game history writing. Very exciting! Hope you all enjoy the possibility of visiting the Strong.
