Proceedings of the Board of Regents Meeting held on May 7, 1990

About the Project

In this 1990 report, Smithsonian’s Board of Regents prepared for a vacancy in its membership, and a very familiar name was floated around. Enter future Smithsonian Secretary I. Michael Heyman. The nominating committee limited their choice to three candidates, but ultimately decided on Heyman, who was the Chancellor of the University of California at Berkeley. They justified their recommendation by explaining his availability, interest in museums, and track record of providing leadership and garnering financial support. The Board agreed and the rest is history. Join a group of volunpeers in transcribing this report which also addresses the Smithsonian’s financial problems, plans for the National Postal Museum, continued discussions about the location of the National Air and Space Museum extension, and more.
