Revisiting World's Fairs and International Expositions:
A Selected Bibliography, 1992 - 1999
This bibliography supplements Bridget Burke's bibliography, "World's Fairs and International Expositions: Selected References 1987-1993," which was published as part of Fair Representations: World's Fairs and the Modern World , edited by Robert Rydell and Nancy Gwinn. It focuses on secondary materials that were published between 1992 and mid-summer 1999, but also includes some entries for materials prior to 1992 that were not included in the Burke's bibliography. Citations were gathered from a variety of sources including online databases such as America: History and Life History of Science and Technology Historical Abstracts , and Dissertation Abstracts as well as from online bibliographic catalogs such as OCLC and RLIN. Informal meetings with scholars and chance findings in book reviews, advertisements, and footnotes resulted in the inclusion of additional citations. Considering the recent resurgence of interest in world's fairs and the large number of publications that have been produced in recent years, a great deal of effort has been made to include as much of this material as possible. However, due to the large volume or material, it is inevitable that some works have been overlooked due to reasons such as incorrect indexing and recency of publication.

The National Museum of American History (NMAH) Branch Library is one of 19 branch libraries in the Smithsonian Institution Libraries (SIL) system. It supports the specialized research, exhibitions, and public programs of the NMAH and other museums and offices within the Smithsonian and the public. The NMAH Branch Library had its formal beginning in 1958 in the Arts and Industries Building, where the object collections that were the basis for the establishment of the museum were housed. The library collection was a combination of the former Office Library, the Arts and Industries Library, and the sectional libraries of the departments of civil history, military history, science and technology, and arts and manufacturing. In 1964, when the new building housing NMAH was opened the library was moved to its present location. HOURS Monday - Friday
8:45 am - 4:45 pm Open to the public by appointment
Monday - Friday
10:00 am - 4:00 pm Closed on Federal holidays USERS The library serves the staff of the museum, other Smithsonian staff, and outside researchers with interests in subjects covered by the collections.

    too bad the spires were not around when the they came to ny to fly into the twin towers.. this temple mock up would have been an excellent target...and very symbolic - 05/30/2003 - anon A special edition of the Book of Mormon was printed for the Spokane worlds fair. It had a picture of Morom on the cover sitting next to the Gold plates, as if he just turned from writing on the plates. - 05/11/2003 - anon
    The 1974 Spokane World Fair Mormon Pavilion
    A pre-construction drawing of the Mormon Pavilion. The pavilion was in the shape of an open Book of Mormon, with two gold plates, joined by large gold rings. Outside was a statue of the angel Moroni, while inside, a movie called Ancient America Speaks was shown in two theatres. The movie told the story of American history as related in the Book of Mormon. Reed boats made by South American Mormons rounded out the exhibit.
    I Actually Saw the Golden Plates
    05/05/2002 - anon Last time I was in Salt Lake, I stopped in the Visitors Center on Temple Square and they had the actual Golden Plates on display down on the basement level. I saw them with my own eyes! At least, that is what the nice young sister missionary from Russia told me. Or what I thought she was trying to tell me, her English was a bit garbled. They look just like I thought they did. TAKE THAT YOU APOSTATES!!!
