Fred Armstrong spent his career building the state's historical records and he doesn't understand why he was abruptly fired from his job as Archives and History director. Armstrong, who had overseen the state's archives since 1985, said he received a letter of termination Thursday morning at a meeting with Culture and History Commissioner Randall Reid-Smith. Armstrong said no reason was given but the letter directed him to immediately leave the state Cultural Center at the Capitol Complex, where the archives are housed.
