Miss Karen Christiansen, Archivist in the Library and Archives Branch, retired March 31st after over 23 years of government service, all of which was in the library of this Bureau. As Miss Christiansen left on short notice several months ago to take care of her invalid sister in Wimbledon, North Dakota, she regrets that she did not have the opportunity to say goodbye to her many friends….

Before coming to the Bureau, Miss Christiansen was instructor at the Nichols Expert Office Training and Secretarial School, St. Paul, and a stenographer at the Gregg College, Chicago.

Miss Christiansen was a paragon of efficiency and conscientiousness here. Her fine work gained official recognition last February by the Award of the Commerce Meritorious Service Medal.

… Miss Christiansen is succeeded as Archivist by Miss Hila V. Parrill, formerly of the Budget Office.
