webmaster's note... "International Participation in
the New York World's Fair 1964-1965" was completed by Sharyn in April, 2004, as an honors
thesis for the Undergraduate History Department, College of Arts
and Sciences of New York University. Her fascinating and meticulously
researched paper brings together vital pieces of history ...
politics, personalities, conflicts and fates ... that made the
1964-1965 New York World's Fair what it was. I believe this material
is vital for anyone who has an interest in the Fair, it's place
in history and how history acted upon it. The essay is easy to
read and understand and is thoroughly enjoyable.
I can't begin to say how grateful
and proud I am that Sharyn allowed her thesis to be presented
in its entirety at nywf64.com. Her written research is an invaluable addition
to a website dedicated to preserving the history and memories
of the Fair. Thank you, Sharyn, for this gift. My thanks also
go to Bradd Schiffman for providing many of the images used to
illustrate Sharyn's Thesis.
And now, "International Participation
in the New York World's Fair 1964-1965" ...
