Inside the New York Times’ Photo Morgue, A Possible New Life for Print -
WNYC

The morgue’s keeper, a tall, dapper man named Jeffrey Roth, greets his
guests in a collared shirt, neck-tie, brown plaid suit jacket and slacks.
He is impeccably dressed for his surroundings.

In four hours, he laid out the intricacies of how the archival repository
once worked, and how it still works, today: clippings and photos are filed
into neatly organized manila folders, organized by subject and biography,
then recorded — first by hand, then by typewriter, then no longer recorded
at all — onto a cards. At the morgue’s height, there were as many as two
dozen clippers, filers, indexers and counter-clerks, sifting through 16
copies of the paper each day, so that when a reporter needed background
research, he had a place to go.
