My Years as Secretary of State
by Hoover Distinguished Fellow George P. Shultz
will describe the processes of reconstructing the past from archival sources
and producing the finished manuscript of a major historical memoir.
The book is a "living history" that reads as high drama
and provides a candid account of an era in world affairs in which vast
transformations were set in motion that are still being played out. She
will also lead the group through an exhibit documenting George Shultz's
life and public career.
The Making of a Historical Memoir: From Raw Data to Finished Manuscript
Archivist Anne Van Camp and Associate Archivist Elena Danielson will
provide an up-close look at the Institution's most priceless documentary
treasures on war and revolution: the first printing of the Communist
Manifesto, original Lenin letters, Czarist secret police files, Goebbels
diaries, original photos of the 1939 Nazi-Soviet Non-Aggression Pact negotiation,
among many other rare artifacts. They will also give a tour of Herbert Hoover's
recently restored Tower offices, where his desk, cabinet chairs, and
other memorabilia are displayed.
