December 2019: Updates From the Director's Desk

Thursday, December 19, 2019

Happy holiday greetings to all of the supporters and friends of the Hoover Library & Archives!  We hope everyone will enjoy this season with friends and family.

The year 2019 has been a monumental centennial milestone at the Hoover Institution. We have successfully completed the move of almost half of our archival collections to secure offsite storage as we prepare for construction of George Shultz Fellows Building, which honors Distinguished Fellow George P. Shultz, who turned 99 this month. Happy birthday, Secretary Shultz! We have also renovated our gallery spaces in Hoover Tower and opened an exhibition marking the rich history of the Institution. We look forward to a new year of collecting, scholarship, digitization, and community engagement. 

We thank you all for your support of the Institution, its mission, and its world-renowned holdings. We look forward to seeing you in our reopened reading room and galleries in 2020!
 

    - Eric Wakin, Director
