State Archivist
Timothy D. Baker
A Biographical Sketch
Tim Baker was appointed State Archivist and Commissioner of Land Patents by Governor Hogan in July of 2015. Having also served as the Deputy State Archivist for over a decade, he has presided over one of the largest mass digitization efforts undertaken by any state in the Nation. Nearly three hundred million historic documents have been scanned and placed online. These efforts serve not only to make these records more publicly available, but the practice also serves as an important preservation role by taking these permanent records out of circulation.
Prior to his joining the State Archives, Baker was Chief Information Officer for the Maryland Department of Planning and served nine years in the Governor’s Office.
