History

Gaylord/SIRS created the Bicentennial special Program Package for the American Issues Forum in 1975. The American Issues Forum was part of the Bicentennial Celebration funded by the National Endowment for the Humanitities, "[t]hrough which the American people [would] have an opportunity to reconsider their origins and the philosophical basis on which the American experiment was established." Each community was to decide if they wanted to hold a discussion group based on the American Issues Forum guidelines.
