New Nevada archivist named

Longtime state employee Jeff Kintop has been named Nevada’s new state archivist, replacing Guy Rocha who retired in February after 28 years.

Kintop, 58, has been the state archives manager since 1991 and worked in university, state history and archives positions since 1979.

When his new position becomes effective July 1, Kintop will become the third state archivist since the agency was created in 1965. He will manage a staff of 13 that catalogs and stores records of state and local governments.

Because of budget cuts, the state archives office will be open only from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekdays starting in July. Plans to add an office and staff in Las Vegas were cut.
