    Neither archivists nor historians have shown much interest in trying to establish a link between the kinds of writing an historian does and the kind of archival records he or she acquires and preserves. This paper presents an Australian study, focussing on the writing of the local historian Keith Swan (1916-1996) and the collections he created for the Wagga Wagga and District Historical Society and for Charles Sturt University.
