In October 1991, preservationists, public officials, historians, museum administrators, and educators gathered in San Francisco to mark the 25th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 and the 75th anniversary of the founding of the National Park Service. There they did something more - they set an agenda for the next 25 years to ensure a continuing and strong role for historic preservation in the nation's cities and countryside. This volume presents that agenda through the writings of some of America's most prominent citizens involved in this field.
