Friends Annual Luncheon 2006
The Board of Directors of The Friends of the Air Force Academy Library held its annual meeting on May 17, 2006.
President Clark, opened the meeting. After the formal opening Secretary Phil Caine briefly reviewed the activities of The Friends during the past year. He placed special emphasis on the role of The Friends as the keepers of the Academy’s heritage, the continuation of the oral history program with Word One, Inc., the acquisition of the papers of the first Superintendent, Lt. Gen. Hubert R. Harmon, the bequest to The Friends from the estate of Maj. Gen. Richard Yudkin, and the publication of a revision of Brig. Gen. George V. Fagan’s book on the history of the Academy.
This year’s speaker, Academy Superintendent Lt. Gen. John F. Regni, gave a very informative and well-received talk on both the broad issues facing the Academy and the place of the Library in particular.
