On September 8 and 9, 2003, the Woodrow Wilson Center's Cold War International History Project will host a pioneering international conference on Cold War commemorative efforts. The meeting is co-sponsored by the Association of Air Force Missileers, the Cold War Museum, the German Historical Institute (Washington, DC), the Harry S. Truman Library, the Kennan Institute; in cooperation with the Norwegian Aviation Museum, the Eisenhower Foundation and Eisenhower Presidential Library, and the National Coalition for History; and with generous financial support from the Boeing Company and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
The principle objective of the conference is to foster a longer-term dialogue among scholars and those charged with interpreting the physical legacy of the Cold War in the United States and abroad. As a neutral meeting ground, CWIHP does not endorse any one historical interpretation but seeks to provide those involved with new and enriching resources and contacts, much as it has successfully done over the past decade in groundbreaking access to archives.
The conference will bring together about one hundred cultural resource specialists, leading international scholars, Cold War veterans, media and foundation representatives, government officials, and other professionals from the U.S. and abroad. Participation is by invitation only.
