Join us in celebrating the 50th Year of Sherman Library and Gardens. You will enjoy dinner and a presentation about the history of the library and gardens by Director Paul Wormser.

Paul joined Sherman Library & Gardens in June 2013. He was most recently the Deputy Director of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda.

The Library’s holdings include about 30,000 linear feet of Presidential and donated records, extensive audio-visual materials, a reference library and museum collections consisting of thousands of foreign and domestic gifts. In his role there, Paul helped plan and implement Library programs and activities, oversaw budget, facility, and personnel administration. Prior to his time at the Nixon Library, Paul was the Regional Archives Director for the National Archives – Pacific Region in Laguna Niguel, where he supervised an archival staff responsible for preserving, protecting and making available historically valuable Federal records created by field offices in Southern California, Arizona and Clark County, Nevada. Paul also served as the Senior Archivist, Archivist and Archives Technician at the same facility earlier in his career.

Paul received his Master of Arts and Bachelor of Arts degrees in History from the University of California Riverside. He has been honored with a Sustained Service Award from the Society of California Archivists, and The Archivist’s Special Achievement Award for Outstanding Achievement in Promoting Civic Understanding in a Diverse Society from National Archives and Records Administration.
Paul’s professional activities include serving in volunteer leadership positions with the Society of California Archivists, the Society of American Archivists and the Western History Association. He is a published author and a regular presenter at history, genealogical and archivist conferences.
