Excerpt

In response to an increasing number of requests for copies of newspaper articles and releases of historic interest prepared and issued by the Publicity Department of the United States George Washington Bicentennial Commission, this material is being selected and re-edited for distribution to the newspapers and special writers of this and other countries.

This First Volume of selected publicity material covers the period of the Commission's activities from March 1, 1930, to July 1, 1931. Volume Two will cover the period from July 1, 1931. to the end of the celebration, Thanksgiving Day, 1932.

It is of special interest and significance that complete files of these releases are desired by newspaper editors for permanent reference. Probably never before have newspapers placed such value upon current publicity material furnished them. This is indeed a gratifying tribute to the experienced judgment and sound qualifications of those responsible for the conduct of this important service.

When the United States Commission began the work of departmental organization, it was realized that nothing was of greater importance than the perfecting of processes for bringing the origin, purpose and plans of the United States George Washington Bicentennial Commission to the attention of the American people. Publicity was, of course, essential. But such publicity could hardly be along conventional lines. Strict historical accuracy was mandatory, but beyond that, were problems never before encountered by publicity experts.
