Marshall to name boro historian next month

Helen Marshall

The Queens borough president’s office will announce its pick for Queens historian, who will preserve the borough’s legacy Tuesday in Kew Gardens, a spokesman for Helen Marshall said.

Marshall’s office had put out the word in the spring that it was searching for a Queens resident to keep track of the borough’s history.

The position does not pay, but the selected winner could be required to make appearances on local television or in documentaries. The historian will also take part in walking tours and lectures.

Dan Andrews, a spokesman for Marshall, said the office’s pick will be unveiled during a news conference at Queens Borough Hall at 120-55 Queens Blvd. in Kew Gardens June 1.

But the office would not divulge the names of the candidates for the position.

The deadline for applying for the position was May 5.
