Subject: NEH and Humanities Day Sept 12

As a member of the National Humanities Alliance, the American Dialect Society

is invited to participate in Humanities Day Sept 12 in Washington, DC: an

event "to make members of Congress more aware of the humanities community and

the importance of the National Endowment for the Humanities to the overall

humanities enterprise in the U.S. Plans for the day include a brief early

morning program over coffee and rolls focused on the effort to retain the NEH

with remarks by members of Congress, historian and author David McCullough,

and others; meethings with legislators and their staff organized by state or

Congressional district; and a final wrap-up session (debriefing) to compare


The National Humanities Alliance board "urges all NHA members to designate at

least one of their individual members or staff to come to Washington on the

12th and participate."

Would anyone like to be ADS' designee? We're not in a position to pay your

expenses, but you'd have our thanks.

Let me know if you're interested or would like further information.
