The old guy sounds like the Ernest Borgnine character in the movie R.E.D. - he was the keeper of the secret CIA underground archives at Langley. The
whole concept of a central archive "warehouse 13" kind-of-arrangement makes good storylines and bad security - Nicolas Cage isn't going to find a
book in the president's desk with everything spelled out.
My bet is that information about the real secrets is so compartmentalized it could never be gathered without wide-spread collusion. Ignorance is the
first level of security and agencies don't really share their own secrets with each other. I can believe an agency-level archivist, just can't
believe any deep-dark secret details would be stored centrally.
