Proceedings of the Board of Regents Meeting, January 22, 1979
About the Project
Held 46 days after the death of Alexander Wetmore (1886-1978), sixth Secretary of the Smithsonian, these minutes document a Board of Regents meeting held in his honor. The 77 page report contains a full account of the jam-packed meeting, and includes some things history may have forgotten. Did you know that a National Armed Forces Museum was once explored by the Regents, or that the National Museum of African Art was an independent museum, acquired by the Smithsonian?
