Bob,
        I just got off the phone with Reba Grandrud, who is the director
of the Arizona Historical Society. As chance would have it, I called over
there to see if anyone had any information concerning donations for the
Goldwater exhibit, and she just happened to be there and had picked up the
phone. According to her, there have been a large number of calls
regarding the Goldwater exhibit, mostly as a result of yesterday's
newspaper article.

        She stated that those wishing to make a direct contribution
towards the exhibit do so by mailing them to:

        Reba Grandrud, Director
        Arizona Historical Society
        1300 N. College Ave.
        Tempe, AZ 85281

        Tel: (480) 929-0292

        All donations should indicate that they are being made towards
the Goldwater Exhibit.
