    On January 10, 2005 Tom Mallon will join NEH as Director of the
    Division of Preservation and Access. Tom is of course well known
    to us all as a member of the National Council on the Humanities.
    He is known to the world as the prize-winning author of 12 books
    including 6 works of historical fiction, each of which drew
    deeply on humanities resources in libraries and archives. Tom's
    numerous articles and essays--on topics ranging from the
    restoration of the New York Public Library's reading room to the
    contents of Lincoln's pockets on the night of his
    assassination--have appeared in the New Yorker, New York Times
    Book Review, The Atlantic, American Scholar, Preservation, and
    elsewhere.  Now Tom's extensive working knowledge of humanities
    materials will be put to the service of further enriching the
    preservation and access programs of the NEH.  Tom earned his PhD
    in English and American literature at Harvard and taught for 12
    years at Vassar College. Please join the Chairman and me in
    welcoming him to NEH in this new capacity.

    Please join us also in thanking Ralph Canevali for his excellent
    service as Acting Director of the division for the last 4
    months, which included one of the division's busiest council
    meetings of the year.  We've asked Ralph to continue to serve as
    Acting Deputy Division Director, and he has agreed.
