Calvin Jefferson, who is descended from the Grangers as well as the Hemingses of Monticello, grew up in Washington, DC.  After working for the U. S. Postal Service, he became an archivist for the National Archives and Records Administration, from which he retired in 2007 after thirty years.  He did not learn of his family's connection to Monticello until 1996.  He has a strong interest in his family history and continues research on the Hemings family, particularly Betty Brown and her descendants.
