Abstract

From July 9–13 in the oppressive heat and humidity of a Washington summer, more than 700 delegates and close to 300 alternates from all over the United States met in Washington for the Second White House Conference on Library and Information Services. They filled the quotas set by law—25 percent from the profession, 25 percent from the general public, 25 percent from government, and 25 percent from library supporters. Delegates at‐large offset any imbalance in representation. Occasionally, honorary delegates—like Members of Congress with an interest in libraries—were also seen in the corridors where a good deal of the negotiations were conducted.
