Proceedings of the Board of Regents Meeting, January 16, 1978
About the Project
What role should the Institution play in centennial celebrations of Albert Einstein's birth? Should the Smithsonian Institution acquire the National Museum of African Art and under what conditions? Should the Smithsonian, host of the International Exchange Service which distributed U.S. government publications to foreign governments, shift that program responsibility to another agency like the Government Printing Office? These are just a few of the topics the Smithsonian's Board of Regents discussed in their first meeting of 1978.
