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" ...
