Sophie Clapp

Company Archivist

Boots UK

Sophie manages the archives, museum and records management collections and services for Boots UK. She started her career at Guinness before graduating from UCL as a qualified archivist in 1995. After a year cataloguing the papers of Sir Winston Churchill at Cambridge University, Sophie returned to business archives working on the corporate archive collection at Unilever. Sophie has worked at Boots for over 17 years and has held positions within their archives and records management functions before heading up the team 10 years ago. In 2015 Boots received a Wellcome Research Resources Award which has enabled them to re-catalogue the entire collection and make it digitally accessible to external researchers.
