Official Master Register of Bicentennial Activities. Fourth Edition.
American Revolution Bicentennial Administration, Washington, DC.
The Congress of the United States directed the American Revolution Bicentennial Administration (ARBA) to "prepare the master calendar of events of local, State, National, and international significance which will take place between March 1975 and December 1976." This book, which is divided into six sections, contains the indexes and details of these Bicentennial activities. Sections 3, 4, and 5 comprise the bulk of the book: Section 3 includes five cross-referenced indexes; Section 4 is a concordance, or key word index; Section 5 contains details on all of the cataloged projects and events. ARBA gathers, organizes, disseminates, and archives Bicentennial data with the help of a computerized Bicentennial Information Network--BINET, through which subscribers have access to on-line, up-to-the-minute information. Information in this edition is from BINET files, and updates and replaces all previous editions. Information is current as of January 2, 1975, and catalogs 4,619 projects (described as a significant effort or program which results in a particular Bicentennial activity) and 1,512 events (described as a specific occurrence which takes place as part of a project).
