Proceedings of the Board of Regents Meeting held on February 1, 1988
About the Project
Blast back to early rumblings of plans for the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy facility. Despite efforts to be more selective in its collecting, deaccession irrelevant items, and loan large objects to other institutions, the Museum was running out of space at an alarming pace. And it was not only running out of room for large shuttles and planes. The Museum was out of space for people, too. As a result of overcrowding, it was forced to stop accepting help from much-needed fellows and volunteers. Assist a group of volunpeers in transcribing these Board of Regents meeting minutes, which reveal the necessity of what what would eventually become the Udvar-Hazy Center.
