The Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference (MARAC) is pleased to
announce that the MARAC Spring 2004 Meeting Program is on-line at our website.
MARAC will be meeting from April 22 – April 24, 2004, at the Key Bridge
Marriott in beautiful Arlington, Virginia, just across the Potomac from
Georgetown and Washington, DC. The Program Committee has assembled an
exciting array of sessions, highlighting the great importance of all
variety and manner of archival institutions—large or small, public or
private, local or national. Session topics include African American
communities, women in the military, politicians’ restrictions, archivists’enhancements, the local history of Arlington, and the national impact of September 11. Whether paper, digital, audio, or film, we all contribute to Archives: In the National Interest.
There is a great deal to explore in Arlington and the surrounding area. An enticing group of tours that highlight Northern Virginia await you. The tours provide the opportunity to visit the homes of some of Virginia’s most famous citizens. These include Woodlawn Plantation, where Major Lawrence and Eleanor Custis Lewis lived, and Gunston Hall, the home of George Mason. A walking tour of Old Town Alexandria will provide you with insight into the daily lives of Northern Virginians throughout history. A tour at the new National Air and Space Museum Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly offers the prospect of viewing many of the over 300 air and space craft on display, including the space shuttle Enterprise and the Boeing B-29
Superfortress Enola Gay. Unique tours of the wineries of Northern Virginia are also offered. As always, the museums, monuments, and restaurants of DC are just a short Metrorail ride away.
Mark Your Calendars. Arlington Awaits!
