Carlos Diaz, BOTM for November, 2007

Carlos A. Diaz is the Head of Government Documents/Maps at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. His interest in government documents is due to his lifelong interest in history, geography, and travel. Concerning his love for history, Carlos stated, "I have always wondered why people did what they did…what led them to make the decisions they made. I always found it fascinating." His love and curiosity for other countries led to a love for stamp collecting and maps. "I don’t think I’ve met anyone who didn’t like maps. Most of the patrons I help are just drawn to the collection…they are fascinated by it all." Carlos has been at Evergreen since 1999 and is enjoying every minute of it.
