Proceedings of the Board of Regents Meeting – January 15, 1969
About the Project
Did you know that there was a combined Smithsonian museum-National Park planned for the United States Bicentennial? The park, and the National Armed Forces Museum , never came to be, after years in development.
Get a peek into the planning process in this set of Board of Regents Meeting minutes from January 1969. One of the many issues mentioned—the ongoing war in Vietnam, the planning for the Hirshhorn Museum—was legislation for the National Armed Forces Museum. Join other volunteers in transcribing this unique piece of Smithsonian history!
