This bulletin discusses and describes four projects constituting Germany's contribution to the American Bicentennial: (1) the establishment of the John J. McCloy Foundation for German-American exchange, (2) the permanent endowment of the Theodor Heuss chair at the Graduate Faculty of Political and Social Science at the New School for Social Research in New York, to be held yearly by a visiting German scholar, (3) the establishment of a chair for a visiting professor at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., and (4) the gift of a planetarium-projector to the planetarium in the Air and Space Museum of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington. Further bicentennial projects in the form of cultural contributions include various performances, exhibits, films, and publications. A discussion of German contributions to the Bicentennial celebrations as a public demonstration of partnership between Germany and the United States is included in the bulletin, along with a list of interesting facts concerning German contributions to American history.
