Whose Vision Fulfilled? Toward a Rightful Ideological Progenitor for the U.S. Federal Depository Library Program.
Walters, John Spencer
Journal of Government Information, v26 n4 p347-59 Jul-Aug 1999
Addresses the assertion by the Depository Library Council to the Public Printer that James Madison's political writings serve as the ideological underpinning for the Federal Depository Library Program. Reviews the evolution of Anglo-American thought regarding the concept of an informed citizenry and suggests Elbridge Gerry as a more appropriate champion. (Contains 76 references.) (Author/LRW)
