The Archivist and the President of St. John's College were hosts to
the residents of Annapolis at an illustrated lecture on the historic buildings
of the Eastern Shore, presented February 13, 1952, in the Great Hall of
the College by Messrs. Conover Fitch and Andrew Hepburn. The speakers
were introduced by Senator George L. Radcliffe, a member of the Hall of
Records Commission. In conjunction with this lecture Beryl Gardner, of
the Hall of Records Staff, prepared a special exhibit of Eastern Shore

Among the many visitors during the year were Dr. Philip A. Crowl
of the Historical Division of the Department of The Army; Miss Ruth
R. Startt, Register of Wills and Mr. John T. Baynard, Clerk of the Court
of Talbot County; Dr. Ernst Posner, Dean of the Graduate School of
American University, who brought his class in Archival Administration;
Mr. Wilbur H. Hunter, Jr., Director of the Peale Museum; Judge W. Calvin
Chesnut of Baltimore; Mr. Fred Shelley, Librarian of the Maryland His-
torical Society; Mr. F. W. Fairfield, Assistant to the Director, Fiftieth
Anniversary Plans Office of the Ford Motor Company; Dr. Worth M.
Tippy, then Chairman of the Building Committee and subsequently Archi-
vist of DePauw University; Mr. Leon de Valinger, Archivist, and Mr.
Charles W. Dickens, Assistant Archivist, of Delaware; and Dr. J. H.
Easterby, Director of the Historical Commission of South Carolina. There
were, of course, many others who examined the building in the course of
the Archivists' meeting.


The Society of American Archivists held its Fifteenth Annual Meeting
at Annapolis October 15 and 16, 1951. This was the second meeting to
be held here: the Hall of Records had been host to the Third Annual
Meeting which was held in 1939. The 1951 meeting was the largest in the
history of the Society, 165 members attending. It is, of course, difficult
for a host to know whether his party has been a success, but all evidence
indicated that it was. The Archivist is grateful to the members of the
Hali of Records Commission who helped in many ways, to the staff and
to the other members of the Local Arrangements Committee, Mr. Louis
H, Bolander, Librarian of the United States Naval Academy; Mr. Fred
Shelley, Librarian of the Maryland Historical Society; and Wade DeWeese,
Capt,, USN, Director of the Naval Academy Museum.
