Mark Prindiville is the Archivist for the Diocese of Saginaw. Born and raised south of Detroit, in a Metro region known as “Downriver.” Attended St. Pius X in Southgate for elementary and middle school, as well as Gabriel Richard Riverview for high school. I went to Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant, where I earned my Bachelors of Science and Masters of Art in History, and went to Wayne State University in Detroit, where I earned my Master of Library & Information Science. I’ve been a team member to several archival institutions, as well as several public libraries, including the Walter P. Reuther Library of Labor & Urban Affairs as an Archives Technician, the Flat Rock Public Library as the Library Director, the Hoover Institution Library & Archives as a Project Assistant, and the Archdiocese of San Francisco as an Assistant Archivist. I have been back in Michigan since the beginning of July, so just about five months. I enjoy traveling, cooking, going on hikes, seeing live music, and spending time with family and friends.
