Forming a New Government

Just in time for Inauguration Day, we have mounted a new exhibit titled "Forming a New Government."

One of the first and most important tasks facing a new president-elect is selecting nominees for Cabinet and ambassadorial positions. Four prominent presidential appointees, whose papers are held by SCPC, are represented in the exhibit:

John West, ambassador to Saudi Arabia under President Carter;

Jim Edwards, Secretary of Energy under President Reagan;

Dick Riley, Secretary of Education under President Clinton (shown above);

and David Wilkins, ambassador to Canada under President George W. Bush.

The exhibit will be on display in the East Gallery of Thomas Cooper Library until March 31.
