About this Seminar:
The Smithsonian Institution is the largest museum and research complex in the world, 163 years old. Its brand-new Secretary is Wayne Clough, formerly president of Georgia Tech.
During his first year on the job, Secretary Clough toured the entire present activities, staff, and history of the far-flung Institution, with an eye to framing up its very long term future, which should embrace centuries at least. In this talk he spells out the prospects—including the long-term future of science and education.
