Morrow, Carolyn Clark, Ed.
This report presents some of the prominent features of a national invitational conference whose goal was to provide a national forum to discuss ongoing preservation efforts in individual states; describe the preservation challenge faced by all states in common; review the kinds of materials at risk; and alert administrators to the opportunities inherent in coordinated statewide preservation programs. The acknowledgements, conference program, and lists of the state participants and conference planning committee members preface the seven themes of the conference proceedings. The remarks of the following speakers, which are included in this report, address these themes: (1) Perspectives on the Problem (Carole Huxley, James H. Billington, Don W. Wilson, Lynne V. Cheney); (2) Collections at Risk: The Preservation Problem Facing the States (Karen Garlick); (3) Current Climate for Statewide Preservation Efforts (George F. Farr, Jr., Carolyn Morrow); (4) Case Histories (Larry Hackman, Bridget Lamont, David Moltke-Hansen and Lisa Fox, Lorraine Summers, John Townsend, Karen Motylewski, Paul Conway, Nancy Sahli, Wesley Boomgaarden, Howard Lowell); (5) Legislative Efforts (Roy Blunt, Richard G. Akeroyd, Jr., Joseph F. Shubert, Gary Nichols, Guy Louis Rocha, Edward Papenfuse); (6) Funding (Ann Russell, Sally Jones, Ellsworth Brown, Larry Tise, John Burns); and (7) Building Public Awareness (Vartan Gregorian, David Hoffman, Edwin Bridges, Nina Archabal). Closing remarks were made by Gerald L. Baliles, the Governor of Virginia. Concluding the report are lists of the sponsoring organizations and their representatives, observers to the conference, and resource people, together with biographies of the speakers and a 29-item bibliography.
