Smithsonian West and the 'Ziggurat'

January 05, 1986

An overheard suggestion that there be a Smithsonian West in the "Ziggurat" is a good idea because a Smithsonian West could create a more equitable distribution of the Smithsonian's resources among the people of the United States.

Orange County's rising importance as a cultural center, its benign climate and its easy accessibility to a great number of people make it a ideal location for such an institution, and the use of the Ziggurat for such a purpose would provide a great saving in site acquisition and construction costs.

I hope that other Orange County residents who share this view will also write their congressmen about the matter. It is further hoped that someone who is experienced in organizing cultural drives will take up the idea and give it impetus.
